New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday held his sixth meeting with chief ministers and union territories through video conferencing regarding coronavirus crisis.
Talking about the current situation of the coronavirus crisis, PM Modi said, “The recovery rate has gone above 50 per cent in India. For us the death of even one Indian is unsettling but it is also true that India is one of the countries where there have been least deaths due to COVID-19,” he said.
“The two weeks of Unblock 1 has given us a lesson that if follow all rules and directions, then the country will be able to minimise its losses. To even think of stepping out without a mask or face cover is not right at present. ‘Do gaj ki doori’, hand-washing and use of sanitisers is of utmost importance. With markets opening and people stepping out, these precautions are even more important,” he added.
