Lockdown has ended, but virus still there PM

Addressing the nation for the seventh time since Covid hit India, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the government was working to ensure that a vaccine, whenever launched, reaches every Indian. He said this is not the time to be careless as the novel coronavirus is still around and even a small negligence can dampen the festive spirit. Many videos have surfaced in recent times that show many people having stopped taking precautions. “This is not the right thing to do,” PM said. “If you are careless and moving around without mask, you are putting yourself, children and the elderly at risk. We must keep in mind that lockdown may have ended, but the virus is still there” he added. In Europe, America and other countries, the number of cases has seen a hike yet again after seeing a decline in the past, he noted.

The prime minister said the government is making all the best efforts to ensure that a vaccine, whenever it is launched, reaches every Indian. We should continue to be careful and not be callous until a vaccine is found. We all must remember, there can be no laxity till a medicine is found,  Modi said.

PM Modi underscored time and again that people should not be reckless and careless, smug in the belief that there is no more danger from the virus. At the same time, keen to dispel the feeling of gloom and doom, he said it was heartening that the economy is slowly recovering and so are the markets. Not just that, health parameters are also looking up, given the relatively better recovery rate in India.
