The advisory said- Section-144 should be implemented. In the 
advisory issued for Madhya Pradesh, the administration of districts has been asked to prevent people from getting out of their homes. Where the crowd gathers, section 144 should be enforced. These rights have been given to the district collectors so that they can discuss the latest situation in their district and decide with the District Crisis Management Group. The advisory states that the neighboring districts of neighboring states should keep a close watch on the infection. Control the movement of people.
