Centre asks states to impose night curfew and containment zones in clusters

The Union Ministry of Health has advised the states to impose night curfews and reintroduce containment in districts having a 10 percent positivity rate and when ICU and oxygen-supported cases rise to 40 percent.

According to the Health Secretary, the new COVID-19 variant Omicron is three times more transmissible than the Delta variant. Therefore, the need for data analysis and enforcing timely containment measures are emphasized at both the local and district level.
