While India has been reporting a decline in COVID-19 cases for the last few days, the Health Ministry has asked the states and union territories (UTs), especially Maharashtra and Kerala, to ensure that appropriate norms are followed during the upcoming festive season to avoid a possible third wave of the pandemic.
Last week, Prime Minister Narendra Modi also held a high-level meeting to review the COVID-19 situation and vaccination status in the country. In his meeting, he underscored the need to rapidly augment the entire ecosystem to ensure increased oxygen availability, including oxygen concentrators, cylinders and PSA plants.
"It was discussed that across the world, there are countries where the number of active Covid cases continues to remain high. In India too, the figures from states like Maharashtra and Kerala indicate that there can be no room for complacency," Prime Minister's Office (PMO) said in a statement.
