Covid update: N95 mask export allowed; India ranks 4th; festival guidelines

From the Union government lifting restrictions on the export of N-95/FFP2 face masks, to India ranking fourth in a survey of public perception regarding response to the pandemic - here are the top news updates on the Covid-19 outbreak.

The central government released guidelines for gatherings as festival season approaches.

The standard operating procedure involves mandatory use of masks, social distancing and CCTVs at event sites to monitor compliance.
