On Monday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi interacted with the Chief Ministers of all the States and UTs in the country to discuss the road ahead in India’s fight against COVID-19. In his opening remarks the Prime Minister said, “We now have reasonably clear indication as to the geographical spread of the pandemic in India, including the worst affected areas. Moreover, over the past few weeks, officials have understood operating procedures in a time such as this, right up to the District level.”
Prime Minister said that this understanding of the spread of COVID-19 will help the country in having a focussed fight against it.
“And therefore, we can now further focus our strategy in this battle against coronavirus, as should be the case. We have a twofold challenge – to reduce the transmission rate of the disease, and to increase public activity gradually, while adhering to all the guidelines, and we will have to work towards achieving both these objectives”, he added.
Prime Minister further said now the effort should be to stop the spread of the COVID-19 to rural areas.
The Prime Minister said the suggestions made by the States for a roadmap on Economy have been given due consideration.
He said the new way of life would be on the principle of “Jan Se lekar Jag Tak”, from an individual to the whole of humanity.
He said we must all plan for the new reality.
“Even as we look at the gradual withdrawal of the lockdown, we should constantly remember that till we do not find a vaccine or a solution, the biggest weapon with us to the fight the virus is social distancing”, he said.
Prime Minister reaffirmed the importance of Do Gaz Ki doori and added that suggestion of night curfew raised by many CMs would surely reaffirm the feeling of caution among people.
