Unlock 4: Why Fourth Phase of Unlocking From September 1 Will be Most Crucial.

Unlock 4: Why Fourth Phase of Unlocking From September 1 Will be Most Crucial.

Since the exams have not been postponed and now there is no chance of the exams getting postponed, public transport, which was functioning at the minimum capacity till unlock 3, will have to achieve the maximum capacity to ensure that exam candidates reach their centres on time.

Metro, local train

Though the ministry of home affairs has not yet published the guideline for unlock 4, several states are in favour of resuming metro trains and local trains. Once these are open, it will be crucial to monitor that all cautions are not thrown to the wind.

Reopening of schools and colleges

It is unlikely that the Centre will give a nod to reopen educational institutions. But the situation will change in unlock 4. Teachers and other employees will be asked to report to the duty. They will take online classes from the school. Additionally, many schools are centres of these national-level entrance examinations. So, educational activities will recommence from September.

No border restrictions

The MHA recently pulled up the state governments for imposing borders curbs while the Centre categorically mentioned that there would be no interstate or intrastate travel ban. From September, the state will have to allow inter-district movement without any restrictions.

Number of cases all-time high 

The number of new COVID-19 cases being reported daily in the country has reached an all-time high in the last week of August. The recover rate too is looking up. The number of tests being done every day has also breached all records. Increasing the number of tests is now the focus of India's COVID-19 strategy. As soon as a case is detected, it can be contained easily. So, despite the number of increasing cases, the health ministry is saying the situation is not grim as the death toll has come down. It remains to be seen whether the strategy works out in September as well.
