Prime Minister Narendra Modi virtually interacted with doctors, paramedical staff and frontline workers on Friday to discuss about current covid crisis. He appreciated their sincere efforts in battling this pandemic. He said that we need to focus on rural areas as covid-19 is likely spread there as they lack proper healthcare facilities.
He said that our fight with covid-19 is going to be a long one. He recommended that the administration should follow motto of ‘Jahan Bimar, Vahan Upchar.’ He mentioned that Kashi has successfully made micro-containment zones and authorities distributed medicines and relief measures to people. He also appreciated senior doctors of Uttar Pradesh who have helped people in rural areas through telemedicine.
PM said that we must continue such efforts even after there is a decline in number of daily cases. He also appreciated efforts of ASHA workers and ANM sisters. He noted that his constituent assembly took a very short time in increasing the number of oxygen and ICU beds. Government authorities equipped the Pandit Rajan Mishra COVID hospital and also made use of technology to distribute relief measures to everyone in the region.
PM Modi found himself filled with emotions while speaking about many lives lost due to the pandemic. He paid his respects to everyone who lost their life in this pandemic. He said that the administration battled with second wave of the coronavirus on many fronts as there was a higher infection rate and longer hospital stays of patients this time. It burdened the healthcare system.
He also mentioned the role of yoga in fighting Covid all over the world. He said that people made fun and laughed when UN recognised yoga but it reached every corner of the world through International Yoga Day. Yoga has helped many in fighting against the pandemic.
He also mentioned black fungus which has made many people its victim. He said that we must focus on taking precautions and be well prepared to deal with it. He urged everyone to get vaccinated on their turn and help in fighting this deadly virus.
