The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has not only crippled the already overburdened public health system of India, but also adversely affected its economy. Due to gross difference in pandemic stage, geographical variation and socio-demographic diversity in different parts of India, a 'fit-for-all' strategy will not be suitable for managing ongoing pandemic. It necessitates the rationale to develop a decentralized district or city specific action plan. This article brings forth how strategies could be modified based on disease load in different parts of the country.
