Centre asks States, UTs to issue strict directions to take necessary measures for COVID management

The Centre has asked States and Union Territories to issue strict directions to the district and all other local authorities concerned, to take necessary measures for management of COVID-19.

In a letter to States Chief Secretaries, Home Secretary Ajay Bhalla today said, the officers concerned should be made personally responsible for any laxity in strict enforcement of COVID appropriate behaviour. He said, with the decline in the number of active Covid cases, the States and UTs are re-opening the activities in a gradual manner.

Mr Bhalla said, while the decline in the number of Covid cases is a matter of satisfaction, the absolute case numbers are still significantly high. He said, there should be no room for complacency and the process of relaxing restrictions should be carefully calibrated.

Home Secretary said, strictest possible measures should be taken in the districts that are still showing high positivity rates. He said, there is need to ensure Covid appropriate behaviour in all crowded places in view of the upcoming festivals.

He said, there should be continuous focus on the five-fold strategy for effective management of COVID-19 –  Test, Track, Treat, Vaccination and adherence to COVID appropriate behaviour.
