The decline in daily COVID-19 cases in India suggest that the third wave of the pandemic is ending. However, the central government has warned against any laxity and asked states and union territories (UTs) to ensure that appropriate norms are followed.

 

On Thursday, it also extended the existing COVID-19 containment measures till February 28. "It is still a matter of concern that 407 districts in 34 states and Union Territories are reporting a positivity rate of more than 10 per cent," said Union Home Secretary Ajay Bhalla in a communication to all states and UTs.

 

"Therefore, looking at the current trends of Covid, there is a need to exercise caution and vigilance," Bhalla said. "Imposition and lifting of local curbs and restrictions should be dynamic, based on the case positivity and hospitalisation status at the local level."
