The Haryana government on Wednesday ordered withdrawal of all existing coronavirus-related restrictions currently imposed in the state as it is witnessing a drop in daily COVID-19 cases for the past few weeks, 

However, the residents of the state are advised to strictly follow COVID appropriate behavioural norms and social distancing, the order said.

The announcement comes after the Centre asked states and union territories (UTs) to review and amend the restrictions imposed by them to control the spread of COVID-19 cases as the number of cases in the country are showing a sustained downward trend.

In a letter to chief secretaries and chief administrators of states and UTs, Union Health Secretary Rajesh Bhushan said on Tuesday that COVID-l9 pandemic is showing a sustained declining trend in India since January 21, 2022.

Meanwhile, Haryana on Wednesday reported 703 new cases, 1227 recoveries and 5 deaths during the day.
