Bhubaneswar: Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Tuesday said lockdown will return if Covid-19 guidelines are not followed strictly.

Reviewing the Covid situation in the state, the Chief Minister said responsible behaviour during the festival time will be vital to limit the spread of Covid during the third wave.
