Don’t allow entry into Delhi without Aarogya Setu App, Lt Guv Anil Baijal told 


The Delhi government is taking a tough check out a “strong recommendation” to need people to put in the Aarogya Setu app launched by the central government before they enter the capital .

The recommendation was made at Lt Governor Anil Baijal’s review meeting on the spread of the Corona virus pandemic on Friday. National Centre for Disease Control director Surjit Kumar Singh, who had been asked to advise the town government, strongly recommended that the govt. allow people to enter the capital only after they need installed the Aarogya Setu app.

Dr Singh also pushed for raising the amount of individuals who were being tested within the capital and supported repeated rapid testing - on the 3rd, 5th and 14th day - in order that a Covid-19 positive individual doesn't get overlooked thanks to a false report. It was at this meeting that Lt Governor Baijal decided to rationalise and carve out safe zones within large containment zones to stop micro-transmission.

A senior official told Hindustan Times that the govt hadn’t taken a choice on the Aarogya Setu recommendation yet. But it hasn’t knocked it off the table either. The big hurdle to mandating the mobile application would be that there might be lakhs of individuals who might not have a smartphone.

it's been downloaded on 75 million phones by Friday evening. India has 1.2 billion mobile phones; only 350 million have smartphones. ‘In Delhi, we are told 80 % of the mobiles are smartphones,” an official said. “Let us weigh the pros and cons,” he said. Dr Singh isn’t the primary person to push the mobile application.
