Addressing the Bhutanese population, PM Tshering said, “We will be wiped out if we can't control the virus now.” He said, “Many in the country thought that after experiencing two episodes of Covid-19 outbreak, the worst was over. The vaccination programme also came as a ray of hope for many. but look where we are today.”
Referring to the scathing second wave in India, PM Tshering emphasised that the threat from the southern borders has now reached the east and added, “If we are not careful, we will suffer the same fate as our neighbours.”
PM Tshering also added that the country was being slowly surrounded from all the corners and that if adequate control measures were not put in place and if people did not adhere to the preventive measures, the country would be overwhelmed within no time.
