This year, the Holi celebrations will be restricted as many states have taken several measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The state governments have banned public gatherings and celebrations due to the recent surge in coronavirus cases.
India, notably, added over 62,000 COVID-19 infections to its total caseload for the second consecutive day on Sunday. The country’s active coronavirus count is now nearing 5 lakh which is the reason why the Central and State governments have taken strict measures to break the transmission chain of the virus.
