The pace at which the number of Covid-19 positive cases are increasing in the country is alarming and dangerous. Last year when the pandemic started, the number Covid-19 cases was not as much as what it is emerging daily this year. In fact, India registered highest spike on April 8 with 1.26 lakhs positive cases. What is more alarming is that if people starts migrating from the affected states to other states, it would spread much faster. Though Government may not consider lockdown as a measure to contain the spread just like last year, what other option does the Government have to contain the pandemic?
