Last month, Delhi witnessed two earthquakes in the span of 24 hours. Now, as the national capital battles the coronavirus (and the 70% special corona fee on liquor), the city was enveloped by a massive dust storm yesterday.
NDTV reports that winds of up to 70 kilometers per hour were accompanied by dust and rains.

But just as residents were starting to enjoy the decrease in temperature, tremors were felt. According to Financial Express, the National Center for Seismology confirmed an earthquake of magnitude 3.5 at Richter scale.

After the third earthquake during lockdown, Twitter was flooded with memes about how nature is rubbing salt on our wounds and why the end is near.

Hindustan Times reports that Delhi has the third-highest number of COVID-19 cases after Maharashtra and Gujarat. The current tally of cases stand at 6923 with the number of deaths being 73. We hope that the patients who are undergoing treatment recover soon and nature eases up in the coming days.
