The Union Health Ministry said on Monday that apart from the high infection rate, if the maximum number of patients are coming to a particular place or where there is more number of patients, then local lockdown can be imposed. However, the Center has not recommended a lockdown in the entire state or district. According to the ministry, there are about 250 districts in the country where the infection rate of corona is 10 percent or more. There has also been a slight improvement in the condition of these districts during the last one week. The government has asked the states to re-identify the districts or places where the maximum number of cases are being received. Many times it is also seen that a village or town in the same district is the most affected, while in other places there is not a single case of infection. In such a situation, it would be better to put a 14-day lockdown in the infection affected village or town itself.
Transition rate over 15 percent in 22 states

Apart from these, the infection rate in nine states is 5 to 15 percent and in only five states it is less than five percent. According to the World Health Organization, the condition can be easily controlled up to five percent infection rate.
