Ahead of the festive season, the Centre on Saturday issued COVID-19 advisory to states and urged people to go online shopping. It also urged people to avoid travel as far as possible.
The Centre also said that the states and UTs must ensure coronavirus precautions and follow guidelines strictly during the festive season.
In a letter to states and union territories, Union Health Secretary Rajesh Bhushan said standard operating procedures issued last month for curbing any spike in cases must be followed.
“States/UTs are further requested to ensure that non-adherence to COVID Appropriate behaviour in public places is dealt with strongly. Inter-sectoral collaboration between health departments, law enforcement agencies, market and trade associations, civil society organizations, and community will be essential to curb any risk of a spike in COVID-19 trajectory,” Mr Bhushan said in the letter.
