He asked the State administration and District Officials to prepare for this challenge by evaluating the data related to seriousness of this infectious disease.
Stressing on the implementation of the Covid appropriate behaviour, the Prime Minister said, adoption of such behaviour is the major tool in the fight against the Covid-19.
