What is the opinion of experts on the night curfew?
State governments may be resorting to night curfew to overcome the rising infection, but experts are skeptical about its utility.
They believe that steps such as the night curfew and weekend lockdown fail to break the link of the spread of infection and therefore do not benefit much.

What is the reason for increasing cases?
Experts have cited two important reasons for increasing cases of infection in many states – testing and irresponsible behavior of people.
