Prime Minister Narendra Modi held a meeting with the Chief Ministers of 15 states on Wednesday on the rising cases of Corona virus. In this meeting through video conferencing, PM Modi said that in view of the increasing number of corona patients, the expansion of health infrastructure should be our top priority. This will happen when each Corona patient receives appropriate treatment. For this, we have to insist on a test, so that we can detect and isolate the infected person by timely examination. PM Modi said that due to the right steps taken on time, all of us have been able to combat this big danger. Today Corona has more than 900 testing labs across the country, millions of Kovid special beds, thousands of quarantines and isolation centers. The biggest thing is, today every citizen of the country has become more aware and aware about this virus than before. All this has been possible only because of the local administration working day and night in collaboration with the state governments. PM Modi said that a large number of quarantine and isolation centers have been constructed in the last two-three months. We have to increase its speed further, so that the patients do not face any problem of beds anywhere. The importance of telemedicine has also increased in this time of Corona. Whether they are partners living in home quarantine or isolation, or are suffering from other diseases, we all have to increase our efforts to get the benefit of telemedicine also.
Number of people released from Corona more than active case
Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that the number of people getting free from corona infection in the country is more than active cases. Three months ago we had a shortage of PPE kits and diagnostic kits. We had very limited stock, as we were completely dependent on imports, but today 1 crore PPE kits and N95 masks have been given to the states. Currently very few patients across the country require ventilators and ICUs. Due to timely measures we have been able to fight the corona and control its spread.
Now a test of three lakh people every day
