PM Modi noted on Tuesday that 10 states account for over 80% of active COVID-19 cases, and asserted if the virus is defeated in these states, then the country will also emerge victorious in its fight. At a video conference with chief ministers and representatives of these 10 states, including Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu, Modi said the recovery rate has gone up which, he added, meant that govt efforts have proved to be effective. "Our experience so far is that containment, contact tracing & surveillance are the most effective weapons against the pandemic with experts of the view that if positive cases are identified within 72 hours of onset, then infection slows down to great extent," PM Modi said.
