No more Covid restrictions in India from March 31
By Sanjay Maurya
As COVID-19 cases continue to decline in India, the Ministry of Home Affairs has decided to end all COVID-19 restrictions from March 31. The ministry will end the two-year-long restrictions imposed during the outbreak of the pandemic. Wearing masks and adhering to social distance rules, on the other hand, will continue as before.
The Home Secretary said that due to the nature of the virus, people must continue to be vigilant about the situation, and states should consider taking prompt and proactive action at the local level whenever there is a spike in the number of cases observed, as advised by the Union Health Ministry from time to time. States and Union territories can release standard operating protocols (SoPs) and advice for containment, vaccination, and other associated issues on a regular basis.
The Union Health Ministry issued an order to states on Wednesday, allowing states to remove Covid19 restrictions based on two factors: hospital bed occupancies and test positivity rates.
The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) will not issue any new orders after the existing order (issued on February 25) expires on March 31. “I would, therefore, advise all the States and UTs to consider appropriately discontinuing the issue of orders and guidelines under the DM Act, 2005 for COVID containment measures,” Bhalla said.
The Central government announced first-time orders and recommendations for the containment of Covid19 in the country on March 24, 2020, under the Disaster Management Act, 2005. These orderings have been modified from time to time.
Under the Disaster Management Act, the Centre’s restrictions for Covid safety would expire on March 31. The decision by the Centre comes as cases of BA.2-a sub variation of Omicron are on the rise in China, South Korea, Vietnam, France, and Germany.
