India has been registering over 20,000 daily cases on 10 consecutive days. The gap between daily cases and daily recoveries is widely increasing. There were 23,653 recoveries over 40,953 fresh cases recorded in last 24 hours.

As Country is in worrying note on  covid-19 situation, the centre wrote on Friday to all states and Unions territories, urging them to ensure that all Covid-19 appropriate behaviour is being followed. Union Home secretary Ajay Bhalla said, "It has been observed that it is largely due to laxity in the observance of COVID-appropriate behaviour by people, especially at crowded places."
