PM Modi speech live: Narendra Modi addressing the nation

New Delhi: PM Modi speech live addressing the nation. Here are the highlights of his speech.

  • India has a facility of more than 90 lakh beds for COVID19 patients. There are 12,000 quarantine centers, around 2000 Corona testing labs. Number of tests will cross 10 Crores soon. In our fight against COVID, rise in the number of tests has been our strength.

  • All countries are working on a war-footing for making COVID19 vaccine. Government is preparing for making the vaccine accessible to every Indian as soon as it is made available.

  • Recently, we saw many photos & videos where it is clearly seen that people are not careful anymore. This isn’t right. If you step out without mask, you put your families at risk. We must remember whether it is America or Europe, cases declined & then there was sudden spike.

  • The fatality rate in India is 83 out of every 10 Lakh population in India, whereas it is more than 600 in countries like the US, Brazil, Spain, Britain.

  • Today, the recovery rate in the country is good. The fatality rate is low. 5,500 people out of every 10 Lakh population in India are infected, whereas in countries like the US & Brazil this figure is around 25,000.

  • In this festive season, markets are bright again but we need to remember that the lockdown might have ended but COVID19 still persists. With efforts of every Indian over last 7-8 months, India is in a stable situation we must not let it deteriorate.
