On the 20th of May, Prime Minister Narendra Modi conducted a virtual meeting regarding the Wuhan virus or Novel Coronavirus situation. The meeting was attended by district officials of 10 states, reporting the maximum number of COVID-19 (Wuhan virus) cases in India. 

Speaking at the meeting, Mr. Narendra Modi said, “Coronavirus is invisible and keeps changing variants. Hence, our approach should also be dynamic and upgraded continuously. The virus has made your work more demanding and challenging. In the midst of new challenges, we need new strategies and solutions. It becomes important to use local experiences and we need to work together as a country.”

Emphasising the need of new strategies, PM Modi said, “In these one and a half years, you have experienced that as long as this infection is present even on the minor scale, the challenge remains (sic.)” He also asked the district officials to control the wastage of vaccines against the Wuhan virus and ramp up vaccination drives, by administering doses to more and more people. Mr. Narendra Modi said, “Wastage of a single vaccine means not being able to provide the necessary protective cover to one life. Therefore, it is necessary to stop vaccine waste.”
