Newdelhi:11/5/20: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has stressed the need to have more focused approach now to fight against COVID-19. He said, the road ahead should be focused on reducing the spread and ensuring that all precautions are taken by people including social distancing norms.

Official sources said, the Prime Minister added that slowly but surely, economic activities have begun to pick up in several parts of the country and in the coming days, this process will further gather steam. He also said, there is global recognition for India’s success in handling the COVID-19 pandemic and the Central Government appreciates the efforts made by all states in this regard. Mr Modi said, now there is reasonably clear indication as to the geographical spread of the pandemic in India, including the worst affected areas.
