Imphal: Ministry of health and family welfare has advised the administrators of states and Union territories to extend containment measures till June 30.
Union home secretary Ajay Bhalla said the strict implementation of containment and other measures has led to a declining trend in the number of new and active cases, across states and Union territories, barring some areas in the southern and north-eastern regions.
Bhalla urged the administrators to continue compliance to the containment measures, as has been advised by the ministry on May 25, so as to fully overcome the pandemic.
In this regard, necessary directions may be issued to district authorities, for taking all necessary measures, the home secretary said.
“I would also advise that orders/guidelines, issued by the respective state governments/UT administrations/district authorities, for implementing containment measures, should be widely disseminated to the public and to the field functionaries, for their effective implementation,” Bhalla added.
