The Center has directed the States and Union Territories to expedite the Covid vaccination process in the wake of the declining number of Covid cases in the country. Vaccination is very important to prevent the spread of Covid.
On Saturday, Union Home Secretary Ajay Bhalla wrote a letter to the Chief Secretaries of States and Union Territories. He advised the states to be vigilant and review the Covid-19 situation from time to time as the day-to-day activities of the online process are being revived. He was asked not to be negligent in following the rules and implementing the Test-Track-Treat-Vaccinate strategy. He was suggested that a decision on whether to impose or relax sanctions should be taken only after a thorough assessment of the situation.
He urged the states and union territories to carefully evaluate the whole process to ensure that cases are reduced or not when resuming programs. Ajay Bhalla suggested following a five-step strategy called Covid-19 behavior, Test-Track-Treat-Vaccination and constantly monitoring Covid rules to ensure that no mistakes are made again.
