COVID-19: Any laxity can be deadly, says PM

New Delhi, Nov 29 (Agency) Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday cautioned any negligence regarding novel coronavirus can turn deadly even at this stage. Sharing his thoughts on the monthly radio programme ‘Mann Ki Baat’, Mr Modi, said it has been one year of one such incident which “we would never want to remember fondly.”

“It has been roughly one year since the world came to know of the first case of corona. Since then, the entire world has seen several ups and downs. We have come out of the lockdown and now the discussion is going on. However, any sort of negligence regarding corona can be deadly even now. We have to firmly keep fighting against Corona,” the Prime Minister said. Mr Modi had on Saturday visited labs in Hyderabad, Pune and Ahmedabad as part of his three-city visit to review the COVID-19 vaccine development and manufacturing process.
