‘India in much better position in Covid fight due to right decisions’: PM Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday spoke on the India’s fight against Covid-19.

Speaking during a virtual meeting, PM Modi said India is in a much better position as compared to other countries due to “right decisions taken at the right time”.

PM Modi said India is now conducting over five lakh Covid-19 tests daily in the country.

"In January, where we had only one centre for COVID-19 testing, now there are about 1,300 labs operating in the country," he said.

PM Modi also said the deaths in India due to Covid are much lower than many other countries.

The prime minister was speaking during the launch event of three new Covid-19 facilities.

The new facilities were launched in Noida, Mumbai and Kolkata.

The three high-tech testing facilities have been set up strategically at ICMR institutions -- National Institute of Cancer Prevention and Research in Noida, National Institute for Research in Reproductive Health in Mumbai and National Institute of Cholera and Enteric Diseases in Kolkata.

The labs will be able to add over 10,000 tests in the three states, PM Modi added.

India’s Covid-19 cases are over 14 lakh so far with over 32,000 deaths reported nationwide.

Over 9 lakh people have recovered from coronavirus in India so far.
