Prime Minister Modi’s address is coming at a time when the country is witnessing a decline in daily number of Covid-19 cases and better recovery. The economy too is picking up with many indicators suggesting positive trend with the beginning of festive seasons.
A committee of scientists appointed by the government recently said that coronavirus in India may have already peaked and infection will likely “run its course” by February 2021. Last Saturday, Prime Minister Modi reviewed the COVID-19 situation in the country, including preparedness of vaccine delivery, distribution, and administration. He said coronavirus cases and growth rate over the last few days were steadily declining but there was no room for complacency.
“We are committed to ensuring speedy access to the vaccine. For that, advanced planning is underway in subjects including: Cold storage chains. Distribution networks. Monitoring mechanism. Advance assessments,” he said. The Prime Minister appealed to people to wear masks, wash hands and follow social distancing- Do Gaj Ki Doori.
