Four different levels of alert will be given through ‘color codes’, which will be decided on the basis of infection rate for two consecutive days, total new cases of infection in a week and average number of oxygen beds filled in a week.
The phased steps include stopping economic activities according to the level of alert based on the severity of the global pandemic. Shops and establishments of essential commodities will be able to open in all the four levels of alert and essential services will continue to run smoothly.
