PM Modi holds high level meeting to review COVID-19 situation in country; Stresses on five-fold strategy to curb the pandemic

@narendramodi
Prime Minister Narendra Modi yesterday chaired a high-level meeting to review the COVID-19 Pandemic situation and vaccination programme in the country. Mr Modi mentioned that the five-fold strategy of Testing, Tracing, Treatment, Covid-appropriate behaviour and Vaccination would be effective in curbing the spread of the Pandemic, if implemented with utmost seriousness and commitment.

During the meeting, he directed for sustainable COVID-19 management and awareness of the community. Prime Minister stressed on the need to continue Jan Bhagidari and Jan Andolan for COVID-19 management.

A special campaign for Covid appropriate behaviour with emphasis on 100 per cent mask usage, personal hygiene and sanitation at public and work places as well as health facilities will be organised from the 6th to 14th of this month.

During the review meeting, the Prime Minister directed that central teams consisting of public health specialists and clinicians be sent to Maharashtra in view of the high case load and deaths, and likewise to Punjab and Chhattisgarh because of the disproportionate number of deaths being reported there.

A detailed presentation was made which highlighted that there is an alarming rate of growth of Covid-19 cases and deaths in the country with 10 states contributing to more than 91 per cent of cases and deaths due to COVID.

The Prime Minister also directed to continue with the mission-mode approach in the states and districts reporting high cases so that the collective gains of COVID-19 management in the country in the last 15 months are not squandered.
