India, which was hit by the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic in April and May this year, has been reporting a decline in its active caseload over the past few days. However, the Centre has urged the state and union territory (UT) governments to ensure that appropriate COVID-induced norms are followed during the upcoming festive season to ensure that cases do not rise again.

Earlier this month, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had also held a high-level meet to review the COVID-19 situation in India. During the meet, the Prime Minister stressed the importance of following appropriate COVID-19 norms. He had also asked the officials to ensure that an appropriate oxygen supply is maintained across the country.
