The NTAC recommended proper implementation of health guidelines, including social distancing, and of wearing masks at every stage to keep the infection rate under control. It also suggested that the authorities carry out campaigning on a greater scale to make the countrymen aware of the issue.
Apart from that, the authorities must ensure that the inbound passengers coming from the countries with high infection rates must carry the Covid negative certificate while entering the country, no matter whether they are vaccinated or not.
