According to the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), a total of 438,011,958 samples have been tested for the Covid-19 illness, with 1,943,488 samples analysed in the last 24 hours.
In a letter to all states and union territories on Wednesday (July 14, 2021), the Union Home Ministry stated that blatant violations of COVID-19 norms had been observed in several parts of the country, including hill stations, and asked the concerned authorities to ensure compliance with the laid down guidelines.
Union Home Secretary Ajay Bhalla signed the letter. Bhalla wrote in the letter that COVID-friendly behaviour is not being followed in public spaces because large crowds pack marketplaces, breaking social distance rules. Bhalla emphasised that the subsequent increase in the “R”-factor (reproduction number) in some states is a cause for concern.
