Following coronavirus disease (Covid-19), which has re-emerged in some regions of the country, many state governments have made it mandatory for people coming from outside to carry proof of testing and, in some cases, vaccination certificates.
The main cause for concern is the Delta variant of Covid-19, which was believed to be the cause of a large number of cases during the second wave of infection.
The decision was also made by state governments keeping in mind the upcoming festival season, a time when many people are planning to travel. The center also asked the citizens of the country to be careful during that time and not to let down the guard. Some of the festivals to be celebrated in the days and months that follow are Onam (August 21), Raksha Bandhan (August 22), Janmashtami (August 30) and Ganesh Chaturthi (September 10).
