Since February, coronavirus cases have been rising across India, especially in Maharashtra, forcing state and union territory (UT) governments to impose stricter curbs, including weekend lockdowns and night curfews.
On Sunday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi also held a high-level meet and discussed ways to control the pandemic in India. The Prime Minister also directed central teams to visit Maharashtra, Punjab and Chhattisgarh.
During the meeting, PM Modi also said that the five-fold strategy of testing, tracing, treatment, COVID-appropriate behaviour and vaccination if implemented with utmost seriousness and commitment would be effective in curbing the pandemic's spread.
Earlier, the Health Ministry had also held a crucial meet with states and UTs, discussing ways to control the pandemic. The Health Ministry had also blamed the laxity shown by the people behind the surge in coronavirus cases and noted that mass vaccination is the only was possibble to control the spread of the infection.
"A modality for ensuring such physical measures have to be evidence-based. In this context partial lockdowns such as night curfews or weekend lockdowns would not have much impact on the transmission cycle," Health Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan had said.
