"As Covid-19 cases in India cross the million mark and as several parts of the country are experiencing a resurgence, state governments have reinstituted state-wide and city-wide lockdown measures. Decisions regarding the location and duration of such policies can be taken effectively through an approach known as adaptive control.
The reason is simple: with adaptive control, states have a choice. They can always choose activity over infection control or vice versa, depending on what is best. What adaptive control provides is a north star to guide states. Decisions are less ad hoc and more transparent. Both governments and their citizens can be assured by this."
