The alarming spike in coronavirus cases has forced state and union territory (UT) governments to impose restrictions, including weekend lockdowns and night curfews, again. Maharashtra, which is the worst affected state in India, is mulling a "strict" 15-day lockdown to control the pandemic.

Meanwhile, Delhi has ruled out imposing a complete lockdown but has imposed strict curbs, including night curfew. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has also closed all schools and coaching institutes in the city-state till further others to control the pandemic.

Meanwhile, the four-day Tika Utsav (vaccination festival) began in India on Sunday after calls from Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Earlier, PM Modi had held a crucial meet with chief ministers of all states and stressed that the focus should be on mass vaccination and micro-containment zones to control the spread of the pandemic.
