Health Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan is virtually meeting with the Health Ministers of nine States to review COVID-19 situation and promote COVID appropriate behaviour. During the meeting the States presented their containment strategies. This meeting is being held in the wake of rising cases of Covid-19 in some of the States and Union Territories.
According to the Health Ministry, 79 per cent of the new recovered cases are observed to be concentrated in 10 States and Union Territories. However, India’s cumulative positivity rate has reduced with a declining trend of new cases but focus on testing remains a prime commitment of the Centre and the State governments.
