  • More than 80 percent of active cases in these states were reported to be in-home isolation. There is a need to effectively and strictly monitor these cases so that they are not intermingling and circulating in their neighborhoods, community, village, mohalla, ward, etc., and spreading the infection.
  • The people in home isolation should be effectively monitored in such a manner to ensure that those who require hospitalization are seamlessly transferred for timely clinical treatment.
  • States to focus on those districts where the positivity rate is less than 10 percent, so as to protect these districts and the populations by focusing on saturation of vaccination in these districts.
