New Delhi, July 27:
India is in a “better position than other countries” regarding the coronavirus outbreak, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Monday as the country recorded close to 50,000 new cases for the second straight day. Speaking at a virtual programme to mark the opening of the “high throughput” COVID-19 testing facilities in Noida, Mumbai and Kolkata, PM Modi said the death rate in India from coronavirus is far lower than that of the other large nations. “The recovery rate is better than most countries and already getting better,” he added.
“The world is praising us because of the efforts of the foot soldiers. We don’t lack awareness,” the Prime Minister said.
