This compendium details information about various practices and initiatives implemented by States, Districts and Cities in India for containing and managing the COVID-19 outbreak. It is important to note that these initiatives are not being termed as ‘best practices’ by NITI Aayog as that would require a separate and comprehensive evaluation exercise as well as longer term follow-up. Moreover, in a rapidly evolving situation, it can be challenging to consistently and fully correlate practices with outcomes - a practice might yield good results for a certain period of time but cease to do so thereafter.
