Health Minister Harshvardhan raised hopes, saying: Rising cases of coronavirus in the country remain a cause for concern. Meanwhile, Union Health Minister Dr. Harsh Vardhan said that the graph of coronavirus will soon be flat. Talking to a private channel, the Union Health Minister said that cases of Covid-19 are increasing rapidly in the country due to an increasing number of tests and contact tracing, but soon this graph of coronavirus will not be available. It will be just flat but will be reversed.
Dr. Harshvardhan said that at present 56,000 people are infected in the country and 1800 people have died, while 17000 people have recovered so far. He said that our recovery rate is 30 percent. In countries smaller than India, there are more cases and more deaths than here. India is in a better position than the rest of the world and people are also following the guidelines of the government.
Tests happening fast in the country
The Union Health Minister said that today there are 452 labs across the country. There are 95000 tests (Covid-19 Test) taking place daily across the country. We are not behind any other country in terms of testing. Today, coronavirus is being tested in every district of the country. He was asked to do 250 tests in Karnataka, but he has done seven to eight thousand tests which have come negative.
Checking will be from indigenous kits soon
Union Health Minister Dr. Harshvardhan said that our scientists will start making Antibody Test Kit and RT PCR Kit in the country from this month. These kits will be used in the future.
The curve of the corona will be reversed from the flat
On the other hand, on the statement of AIIMS director Dr. Guleria that the cases may increase in June-July, Dr. Harshvardhan said that I have not spoken to him. I have no idea what he thought of this statement, but I am personally optimistic. In that case, I can say that in the coming time the curve of coronavirus will be completely flat, and then it will also be reversed. In this battle against the coronavirus, we will win decisively.
PM Modi will consider lockdown
Regarding the lockdown, the Union Health Minister said that it is necessary to relax it gradually. He said that India is the only country in the world where the Prime Minister, while introducing extraordinary courage, implemented such a long lockdown and the people followed it. Harshvardhan said that whether the lockdown is relaxed or not but the effect of Corona will not stop till we forget that even after this it is very important to wear social distance and mask. He said that after May 17, the decision on lockdown will be taken by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and this decision will also be taken on the basis of the response of the Chief Ministers.
