The continuous spike in cases has forced state and union territory (UT) governments to impose restrictions. In Maharashtra, a 15-day Janata Curfew is underway while Delhi has imposed a night curfew and is planning to impose stricter curbs.

On Sunday, the state governments in Bihar and Tamil Naud also issued fresh coronavirus guidelines and imposed night curfews. The two states have also imposed a weekend lockdown and closed all schools and colleges amid the surge in cases.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Narendra Modi last week held a crucial meet with all top officials of the central government reiterated that the mantra of "testing, tracking and tracing" is the only solution to break the chain of the pandemic. He also urged officials to ramp up the vaccination drive across the country.
