Business As Usual? Traffic Is Back To 90% Of Pre-Pandemic Levels

Business Insider reports that despite the novel coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, roads are still fairly crowded.

Traffic has steadily increased since crisis lows in mid-April, when it bottomed out at 52% of normal levels.

In fact, transportation data firm INRIX says vehicle traffic has rebounded to about 90% of pre-coronavirus levels.

The CDC recently advised employers to incentivize workers to avoid public transportation on their commutes.

‘Donate oximeters’: Kejriwal suggests ways to support villages amid Covid-19

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal urge people to donate oximeters in villages to support rural areas amid coronavirus pandemic. Kejriwal, in his press briefing on Independence Day, shared a few tips on Covid-19 containment and treatment. The Delhi CM said home-isolation has helped Delhi in tackling Coronavirus. Kejriwal urged people to come out and take responsibility as Covid-19 spreads in rural India. Kejriwal appealed to AAP workers to support villages and provide oximeters to those who need it. Oximeters help in measuring the oxygen level and are found to be extremely useful for coronavirus patients who in many cases battle breathlessness due to lack of oxygen. "My appeal to people is to donate to AAP as many oximeters as possible so that every AAP worker can take the responsibility of his village to measure the oxygen level of people who have fever or breathlessness. We can save the lives of people through oximeters," he said. The chief minister also advised states to implement Delhi's home isolation model that can help in their battle against coronavirus.
