We have to avoid corona and also move forward
PM Modi said that we have to avoid corona and also move forward. He said that such a big disaster has brought a message and an opportunity for India. He said that I want to say with an example that when the Corona crisis started, there was not a single PPE kit made in India nor the N95 mask was produced. But today the situation is that 2 lakh PPE and 2 lakh N-95 masks are being made in India every day. We are able to do this because we have turned disaster into opportunity.

Being vigilant, following all the rules of such war, we have to avoid it and also move forward.
