With a consistent decline in COVID-19 cases in India, several states like Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and West Bengal have given many relaxations. However, still there are many states -- including Maharashtra, Haryana, Puducherry, Telengana, Kerala and Tamil Nadu -- that have extended the lockdowns and other COVID-19 curbs, fearing that cases might rise again if proper norms like social distancing and usage of masks are not followed.
