We must keep in mind that the lockdown may have ended but the virus is still there.
COVID-19 fatality rate in India is 83 for one million population, while the figure is more than 600 in countries like U.S., Brazil and Spain.
This is not the time to be careless or to believe that COVID-19 has ended.
Of late many people have stopped taking precautions, this is not right.
If you are careless and moving around without mask, you are putting yourself, children and the elderly at risk.
Govt is making all efforts to ensure that COVID-19 vaccine, whenever it is launched, reaches every Indian.
