Though India saw a dip in its daily cases on Monday, this could be attributed to the fact that less tests are conducted on weekends in most of the states. 

Another lockdown or not?

While India has been reporting a continuous spike in cases, the Supreme Court has asked the Centre and states to consider imposing lockdown to break the chain of the virus.

However, a report by The Times of India has claimed that the Centre is not interested in imposing a nationwide lockdown like the one imposed in March last year. However, it has reportedly asked states to impose "customised lockdowns" to control the surge.

Notably, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who has held several meetings with top officials over the past fews days, had last month said that the Centre might not imposed another lockdown to control COVID-19 pandemic.
