Earlier, Health Ministry of India on June 9 encouraged States and Union Territories to not let their guard down and firmly maintain COVID-appropriate behaviour in light of the recent spike in COVID-19 cases recorded throughout the nation.

In a letter to the States/UTs, Union Health Secretary Rajesh Bhushan urged them to intensify RT-PCR testing, monitoring, clinical care, immunization, and COVID-19 procedures and to adopt prompt preventive measures.
