PM Modi Meets Ministers, Asks Them to ‘Lead by Example’ to Prevent a Third Covid-19 Wave

In the meeting, the prime minister stressed the need to prevent a third wave of Covid-19, sources told CNN-News18. Vaccination on a war footing and following of Covid-appropriate protocol must be practiced and encouraged at all levels, he is said to have told the ministers.
Sources told CNN-News18 that when PM Modi spoke to the ministers while concluding the meeting, he emphasised the importance of last-mile delivery. “Shilaanyas se udghatan (from laying the foundation stone to completion) should be of our focus,” he said.

It has been a massive challenge for India to overcome not just one but two waves of Covid so what must continue even now is the strong implementation of mask and social distancing rules. The vaccination drive has been happening at a rapid pace but that pace needs to continue in the days and weeks to come if India has to inoculate its entire adult population by the end of this year. There is still a decent amount of vaccination hesitancy thus every lawmaker needs to ensure that they take every person they can for vaccination,” he underlined
