Prime Minister Narendra Modi has called for a mass vaccination programme from 11th to 14th of this month and observe the vaccination festival. 11th April is the birth anniversary of Jyotiba Phule and 14th is the birth anniversary of Baba Saheb Ambedkar. Mr Modi urged the youth to come forward and help senior citizens and others who need help to register for COVID Vaccination.


Interacting with Chief Ministers of states yesterday evening on Covid situation through video conferencing, Mr Modi stressed on the need to create micro containment zones to effectively contain the rising cases of Covid-19. He urged States to intensify their efforts on war-footing. Mr Modi said, Maharashtra, Chhattisgarh, Punjab, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat and other states have crossed the peak of the first wave and some other states are also moving towards it quickly. He said, it is a worrying and serious concern for all. He said, the country has already crossed the time of peak of the first wave and the growth rate this time is faster than the first wave. 


Mr Modi expressed disappointment that in some states people have turned casual compared to the last time and administration too seems to be lazy. The Prime Minister said, a challenging situation is emerging again. He urged the states to focus on Test, Track, Treat, Covid appropriate behaviour and Covid Management.

The Prime Minister appealed to States to stress on COVID-19 testing and the target is to do 70 per cent RT-PCR tests.
                 
The meeting came in the wake of a steep rise in fresh infections. Mr Modi also discussed the ongoing vaccination drive during the virtual meet.
