Health secretary Rajesh Bhushan has asked these states to monitor clusters, intensify genome sequencing along with a need for stricter vigil on the pandemic situation.

“There are a few states which are reporting a higher contribution to India’ cases and higher positivity. This ministry has advised following a risk-assessment based approach on following economic and social activities,” Bhushan said in a letter sent to the states.
