India much better placed than other countries in fight against COVID-19
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said that India fared much better compared to some other countries in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to lockdown, many initiatives have been taken by the Government and in this people-driven fight, India is much better placed than many other nations. Powered by our corona warriors, India is firmly fighting COVID-19. Some people had predicted that the impact of the virus would be very severe in India. But India is much better placed than other nations. Our recovery rate is rising. Any loss of life is unfortunate. However, India’s death rate due to COVID is under 12 per million whereas the rate is 574 per million in Italy. The death rate is much higher in America, Briton, Spain and France. But we cannot let our guards down. We have to be even more cautious.
