All centrally protected monuments, museums, and sites under the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) have been closed with immediate effect till May 15 due to the surge in coronavirus cases in the country, the Union culture ministry said.

“Due to the prevailing COVID situation, it has been decided to close all centrally protected monuments, sites, and museums under the ASI with immediate effect and till May 15 or until further orders,” the ASI said in a notification.

Last year, too, all monuments and sites maintained by the ASI were closed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

India has emerged as the worst-hit nation by the latest wave of the Covid-19 pandemic, recording a more than two-fold rise in fresh cases with 2,00,739 new infections getting reported on Thursday, as compared to the country’s highest previous peak of 97,894 cases recorded on September 17 last year.
