Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi reminded the public to continue to take preventive measures on the occasion of the Indian holiday season, and said that after the new crown vaccine is put into use, it will benefit everyone.
According to Al Jazeera, Modi urged Indians to continue to wear masks and maintain social distancing in a televised speech on the 20th to prevent the spread of the new crown epidemic before the Indian holiday season.
Modi also reminded the public: “Until the vaccine is successfully developed and put into use, we cannot relax our vigilance. We cannot be complacent in the fight against the new crown epidemic.” Modi said, “As long as the new crown vaccine is put into use, the government will let everybody as soon as possible. Every Indian can be vaccinated.”
According to reports, in the past month, the number of new crown infection cases in India has been declining week by week, but the total number of cases in the country has approached 7.6 million. In addition, some experts have warned that when a large number of Indians participate in Durga and Diwali celebrations this month and mid-November, the number of new crown infections may rise again.
Currently, the number of confirmed cases of new crown in India ranks second in the world, after the United States.
