To avoid the worse, the Supreme Committee said it will take a series of tougher and more comprehensive measures that might culminate into lockdown and total ban on movement during the above-mentioned period.

The Supreme Committee has decided to maintain its decision requiring students of government schools to continue learning online till Thursday 8th April 2021.—AP
