Amid the nationwide lockdown imposed to break the transmission chain of coronavirus outbreak in India, Prime Minister (PM) Narendra Modi is going to share a message with all Indians on Friday morning at 9:00am.
Taking to social media, the PM said, “At 9 AM tomorrow morning, I’ll share a small video message with my fellow Indians.”
Earlier today, the PM hosted a video-conference meeting with the chief ministers of all states to discuss the measures undertaken to combat the crisis at hand.
During the conference, he said the government's first priority for the next few weeks should be "testing, tracing, isolating, and quarantining" and for this, administrative efforts down to the district level must be coordinated.
Modi said it is imperative to work on a war footing, identify hotspots of the virus, encircle them and ensure that the virus does not spread out.
On Thursday, a total of 1,965 people have tested positive for Covid-19 in Indian while 50 people have died across the country. Out of 1,965, 150 people have recovered.
