Centre has written to States saying there should be continued focus on the five-fold strategy of Test-Track Treat-Vaccination and adherence to COVID Appropriate Behaviour. In a letter to all States and UTs today, Health Secretary Rajesh Bhushan said the state enforcement machinery should effectively enforce the norms of COVID Appropriate Behaviour like wearing of face masks and maintaining safe physical distancing in all public areas.

A sustained and significant decline in the number of Covid cases across the country is being observed since last two months. The Health Secretary cautioned that there is a need to follow a risk assessment-based approach on the opening of economic and social activities without losing the gains made so far in the fight against the pandemic.

Centre has asked States and UTs to continue implementation and monitoring of necessary measures for prompt and effective management of COVID and to ensure effective compliance of various advisories issued by Union Health Ministry.

It said that there should be constant review of emerging data of new cases at the district level based on a sustained and critical level of testing to facilitate the evidence-based decisions for restrictions.

Such decisions should be taken at State or UT level after proper analysis of the local situation, such as the emergence of new cases, case positivity, population affected, the geographical spread of cases and hospital infrastructure preparedness.
