'Lockdown lifted, coronavirus still present, stay alert' - PM Modi


Daijiworld Media Network - New Delhi (SD)

New Delhi, Oct 20: Addessing the nation Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that we need not forget that the lockdown is over but the coronavius is still there and we have come a long way in the fight against coronavirus. This is the seventh time the Prime Minister is addressing the nation since the nation wide lockdown imposed in late March.

He further said that India has been successful in saving lives during this pandemic compared to many other countries. "In India, the death rate at per million population is 83. On the contrary, in several countries such as US, UK and Brazil, the number is over 600. India has been successful in saving lives of its citizens better than more prosperous countries," PM Modi said. He stressed that citizens must be alert and not let the situation worsen rather contribute towards preventing the spread.

"More than 10 crore tests have been conducted so far, over 2,000 Covid labs are operational, over 90 lakhs beds are available and over 12,000 quarantine centres are there in the country.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," Modi said.

He said that currently many people have stopped taking precautions and it is not right. Carelessness and walking out without a mask would put oneself and family, family's children, the elderly in as much trouble.

He urged the citizens to be alert and said that carelessness could stop our movement and the country is going through difficult time yet we are moving forward. “Taking care of responsibilities and vigilance will go hand in hand, only then will happiness remains in life,” he said.

Modi said that the government is working on how to bring the vaccine to all the citizens in a speedy way. Modi stressed on various versions of vaccines that are being developed in India and scientists of the country are working on a war footing to develop a vaccine while a few candidates are in an advanced stage of trials.

He wished the country for the festive season and said, "I pray to all of you, I want to see all of you safe and your families happy. I want to see festivals bring cheer your lives."

    COVID-19 will stay with us forever. It is like normal flue. Precautions and preventive measures are the only vaccine for this pandemic. Everyday more people die due to other problems than COVID-19. Lockdown and cancelling international flights are not the solutions. It kills Indian economy and poor people. People should learn how to live with this COVID-19. Modi govt. has done his best until now let him take bold decision to start normal life in India. Start schools, business and international flights. No one can stop our destiny. We all support any govt. who thinks and take of poor people. Children addicted to mobile and computers. Children suffering mentally now more than COVID-19 symptoms. Every country has taken bold step about their children. Indian children cannot afford to continue with this E-learning. We do not have proper network system, resources and electricity in many villages.

    Modiji needs to use the money from the PM cares fund and provide Masks and Hand Sanitizer to the poor so they can be protected from Corona.

    He should have also given Rs 5000 to the poor and the unemployed during these difficult times. He should have done this from day one. Instead he is hoarding all the money that was donated by the people to the PM Cares fund.

    Lockdown only delays the infection spread, now if 90 lakh beds are available what was the purpose of the lockdown in the first place, considering 90 % infected are asymptomatic and 5 % have mild symptoms and do not require hospitalization. Only if incoming passengers were restricted ,tested and quarantined in Jan/Feb there would have been no import of virus, but at that time Namaste Trump and MP defections were more important.

    After denial for months, Health Ministry accepted there is community transmission.
    Next day NIMHANS report says that by December end 50% of Indian population will be infected.

    These both claims have raised serious concerns - which means government now realised the number of infected people is much higher and they can't hide it anymore.

    Numbers don't match. With the above claims, 10 Crore tests is not enough.

    Modiji, why are you growing your beard? What image are you trying to convey? That you have taken sanyasam and have renounced everything in life, including the people who supported you? Why don't you go Himalayas and meditate. We want a leader who can lead us through this crisis, not a monk who in waiting for divine intervention.

    Oh, there are no infiltrations or cross-border clashes after abrogation of Art. 370 - is this what you want to tell ?

    Just as the PM assured the nation, to be happening as a result of Abrogation. We the entire nation trusted him like we trusted DeMo to retrieve the black money stocked in the volume of 15 Lakhs per person.

    LOL !

    After the abrogation of Art 370, the local media in Kashmir has been clamped down on reporting anything. Politicians in Kashmir have been under house arrest for almost a year, on grounds that they 'may' disturb law and order, which is ridiculous. You may disagree with them ideologically, but remember they are Indians too. There is no double standard for fundamental rights. To the rest of the country, it appeared all is going well. But the reality on the ground is completely different. Just because the media has stopped reporting about the insurgency does not mean that there is no insurgency.

    Modi made a total mess of the situation by clamping a Lockdown in March when it was actuall needed in August-September when the Covid cases were spiraling out of control. Behind his pretentions in his adresses to the Nation and his Maan Ki Baat he has been destabilising opposition ruled state Govts and letting loose all the Central agencies on opposition parties and leaders.

    We Indians are blessed with a better immunity than the rest of the world, which only why our death rate is lower. If the medical facility will be made cheaper to all alike, I am sure people will save their hard earned money.

    Please tell us what will be done in future than bragging about what has been done so far which in-fact is minimum.
