New Delhi: As the death toll for Covid-19 crosses 100 in India with the last week seeing a spike in cases, Union Cabinet Secretary Rajiv Gauba said other states could consider adopting the ‘Bhilwara model’ to curb the spread of coronavirus.

The textile town in Rajasthan became a Covid-19 hotspot, registering 27 positive cases and two deaths.
