The Centre on Tuesday extended Covid containment guidelines till April 30 with special focus on testing, tracking and treating positive cases and increasing the pace of vaccination.
“Keeping in view the fresh surge in Covid-19 cases, which is being witnessed in some parts of the country, the guidelines mandate the State/UT Governments to strictly enforce the Test-Track-Treat protocol; ensure observance of Covid-appropriate behaviour by everyone; and, to scale up the vaccination drive to cover all target groups,” a statement from the Ministry of Home Affairs said quoting the guidelines.
