Seeks countrymen with seven things
We will keep patience, follow the rules and we will be able to defeat the epidemic like Corona. In the end with this belief, I am seeking your support in seven things today.
First point- Take special care of the elders of your home, especially those who have chronic diseases, we have to take more care of them, keep them very safe from corona.
Secondly – Follow the Laxman Rekha of lockdown and social distance completely, use home made face cover or mask essentially.
Third point – to increase your immunity, follow the instructions given by the Ministry of AYUSH, hot water, decoction, and consume them continuously.
Fourth – to help prevent the spread of corona infection, definitely download the Arogya Setu Mobile App. Inspire others to download this app as well.
Fifth – Take care of as many poor families as possible, fulfill their food requirement.
Sixth – You should work with people in your business, your industry, be compassionate towards people, do not expel anyone from your job.
Seventh point – pay full respect to the Corona warriors of the country, our doctors, nurses, cleaning personnel and policemen.
Young scientists come forward to make Corona vaccine
Today India may have limited resources, but I have a special request to the young scientists of India that for the welfare of the world,
Come forward for human welfare and take the lead in making the Corona vaccine.
Arrangement of more than one lakh beds in the country
We are moving fast on the health infrastructure front as well. While in January we had only one lab to test Corona, now more than 220 labs are being tested. Today in India we have arranged more than one lakh beds. Not only this, there are more than 600 such hospitals, which are working only for the treatment of Kovid-19. These facilities are being extended more rapidly.
Government will issue detailed guidelines tomorrow
Neither do any negligence nor let anyone else be negligent. A detailed guideline will be issued by the government in this regard tomorrow. The farmers’ interests have been taken care of while creating new guidelines.
The fight against Corona will increase more harshly
The fight against Corona will be further increased in the next one week. By 20 April, every town, every police station, every district, every state will be tested, how much lockdown is being followed, how much that area has protected itself from Corona. The areas which will be successful in this ordeal, which will not be in the hotspot, may be allowed some necessary activities from April 20.
Corona has to stop spreading to new areas
My request to all my countrymen is that now Corona does not allow us to spread to new areas at any cost. If a single patient grows at the local level then this should be a matter of concern for us. So we have to be very careful about hotspots. We have to keep a close watch on the places that are expected to be converted into hotspots.
India did not wait for the problem to grow
When we had only 550 cases of Corona here, then India had taken a big step for the complete lockdown of 21 days. India did not wait for the problem to escalate, but tried to stop it at the same time by taking fast decisions as soon as the problem appeared.
Managed to handle Corona’s loss to a great extent
We have been able to handle the loss of corona virus to a large extent due to the countrymen. You have also saved the country by suffering. I know you have had to face a lot of trouble but you are doing your duty like a disciplined soldier for the sake of the country.
