The national capital was plagued by hot weather, with maximum temperatures reaching 33.1 degrees Celsius on Monday and 37.3 degrees Celsius on Sunday.
Meanwhile, the Delhi government has gradually eased the lockdown imposed to contain the second wave of COVID-19.
Concerned about a possible third COVID wave, the owners of many yoga institutes in the national capital have stated that they would prefer to continue conducting their classes online for some time, despite the Delhi government allowing them to operate in-person beginning Monday.
Gymnasiums, on the other hand, have prepared to reopen at 50% capacity, with several of them beginning the sanitization process and even offering special discounts to customers who have been vaccinated against COVID-19.
