Apr 17, 2021 16:17 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Amid an alarming spike in Covid cased in the fresh wave of coronavirus, the Lancet India Task Force has in its report recommended a ban on all indoor gathering to curb the spread of infection. In its report, the Lancet Covid-19 Commission's India Task Force has recommended a two-month ban on all indoor public gatherings to break the chain of transmission.

The report mentioned 'public health concerns need to override any other considerations, given the risk of infection, morbidity, and mortality'.

The report urged for greater vigilance and also asked for closures of all movie theatres, sports arenas and stadiums, and indoor halls where groups of more than 50 can gather, for the next two months. Its other recommendations included community-led, decentralized tracing, testing and isolating and community monitoring.
