The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) directed all States and Union Territories (UTs) to consider the containment measures, as had been conveyed in the advisory of the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW), dated April 25, 2021, for immediate implementation based on the assessment of the situation.
The Union Ministry of Home Affairs on 29th April 2021 issued fresh guidelines to all the states and UTs and asked them to strictly implement containment measures across districts with a high number of COVID-19 cases to check the spread of the viral disease. The Issuance of the guidelines has also ruled out nationwide lockdown as the MHA did not mention anything about the imposition of a nationwide lockdown anywhere in the country in the fresh guidelines issued in view of the pandemic for May.
Implementation of Containment Measure for COVID-19 Guidelines by MHA
In the guidelines, the MHA asked the states to identify the districts where either the COVID-19 positivity rate was more than 10 percent or the bed occupancy was over 60 percent in the last week. The districts fulfilling any of the above two criteria should be considered for intensive and local containment measures.
The implementation framework for community containment and large containment areas, as advised by the health ministry, has also been enclosed with the MHA order.
The national directives for COVID-19 management shall continue to be strictly followed throughout the country and the MHA order shall be effective till May 31.
