India’s active caseload, currently at 12,597, is also the lowest in almost two years.  Before this, the country had under 13,000 active Covid cases last on April 18, 2020.

India’s Covid data as on April 4.

With the Covid case graph on the declining trend for quite some time now, Covid-19-related restrictions in the country were lifted from Friday, April 1, two years after the curbs were implemented in a bid to tackle the pandemic.

While curbs have been lifted, wearing of face masks and social distancing norms still continue.

In a letter to the chief secretaries of all states/UTs in March, Union Home Secretary Ajay Bhalla had said that as capacities related to pandemic management had been significantly developed, the National Disaster Management Authority had taken a decision to not further invoke the provisions of the DM Act for COVID containment measures.

The Central government had on March 24, 2020, issued for the first time orders and guidelines under the Disaster Management Act, (DM Act) 2005 for the containment of Covid-19 in the country and these have been modified on various occasions.
