‘India succeeded in curbing the corona’
NITI Aayog member (health) V.K. Paul said that India has been successful in curbing this epidemic so far by imposing restrictions on social and economic activities and by adopting the prohibited area and care measures. He said, “The epidemic situation is improving in large parts of the country, the rate of infection and the number of active cases are decreasing and the rate of recovery of patients is increasing. It is also seen that there has been an increase in other states, so this is a mixed scenario.
But we have to go a long way in dealing with this wave and also make sure that there is no laxity in the steps we take. Paul further said that the situation is improving, but we have to ensure that the transmission chain remains broken. The rate of infection is still above 10 per cent in 382 districts, so there is still a long way to go to fight this wave. We also have to ensure that no laxity is taken.
