PM chairs high-level meeting to review Preparedness to COVID-19
Prime Minister Modi said, “Hard work is our only path and victory is our only option. We, 130 crore people of India, will surely emerge victorious against Corona with our efforts.
As the new variant of Omicron is increasing infectivity in India and the daily active cases have touched 2.5 lakh every day, the public health preparedness needs to be re-looked at to tackle any emergency situation in the country.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi held a high-level meeting with Chief Ministers of states and Lt. Governors/Administrators of UTs to review Public Health Preparedness to COVID-19 and National COVID-19 Vaccination Progress.
Health officials briefed the Prime Minister about the current situation in the presence of Union Ministers Amit Shah, Dr Mansukh Mandaviya, Minister of State Dr Bharati Pravin Pawar and among other senior officials.
Addressing those present in the meeting, the Prime Minister said, “Hard work is our only path and victory is our only option. We, 130 crore people of India, will surely emerge victorious against Corona with our efforts.”
“The earlier confusion about Omicron is slowly getting cleared now. The Omicron variant is infecting the general public many times faster than the earlier variants. We have to be alert, be careful, but we also have to take care that there is no panic situation. We have to see that in this festive season, the alertness of the people and the administration is not lowered anywhere,” he added.
PM Modi said that the way the central and state governments had adopted a pre-emptive, proactive and collective approach, the same is the mantra of victory this time as well. “The more we can limit the corona infection, the less the problem will be,” he added.
