The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) on Saturday extended all existing safety protocol related to the pandemic up to September 30 to curb further spread of the deadly disease, directing state governments to take pro-active containment measures ahead of the upcoming festival season.

"The state governments/UT administrations concerned, having high positivity in their districts, should take pro-active containment measures so as to effectively arrest the spike in cases and to contain the spread of transmission," the MHA order read.
