‘Extra prepared’ for spike in Covid cases: government

With no formal announcement on the extension of the 21-day national lockdown which expires on April 14, the government on Sunday asserted that it is “extra prepared” if there is an exponential rise in the number of coronavirus patients.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi held a four-hour video-conference with Chief Ministers on Saturday, when he discussed lifting of the lockdown and various other issues related to the government’s Covid-19 combat strategy.

Addressing a press briefing on Sunday, Health Ministry’s Joint Secretary Lav Agarwal said the government is expanding the Covid-19 testing capacity in state-run as well as private medical colleges.

As many as 909 cases and 34 deaths had been reported in the last 24 hours, the Health Ministry said.
