The second wave of corona has weakened in the country, but there is a possibility of a third wave. The government is making preparations for this. The government is particularly concerned about the rush at hill stations and markets. Regarding this, now the Health Ministry has issued a new guideline regarding traveling. It states that there is a need to avoid traveling without full vaccination. In this guideline issued by the Health Ministry, 7 major things have been focused.
No room for slack
A ray of hope has been shown against Corona in the sero-survey, but the laxity cannot be given right now. 32 percent people are still not safe from corona.
No statement on district wise situation
The government said that the situation may be different at the local or district level. In the sero-survey, the overall situation of the country has been looked at.
State-level action needed
States should continue with local sero-survey to find out what percentage of population is protected against COVID.
Possible third wave
There may be waves of infection in the future. In some states, immunity against corona has been found at a high level, while in some places it is very low.
Many states have relaxed restrictions for gatherings, but there is a need to avoid this for now. Uttarakhand, UP and Delhi have recently canceled the Kanwar Yatra.
Avoid non-essential travel
In many states, tourist spots and markets are getting crowded due to relaxation, due to which the risk of infection has increased. People need to avoid non-essential travel.
Travel after vaccination
The government said that travel only after full vaccination. That is, only those who have taken both the doses of the vaccine after the fixed interval should go on the journey.
What rules have the states kept?
Those coming from states with a positivity rate of more than 5% will have to show a certificate of both doses of the vaccine or a negative report of RT-PCR.
Fully vaccinated people can enter the state even without RT-PCR.
