New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will interact with Chief Ministers on the emerging COVID-19 situation in the country on Wednesday via video conferencing, amid fears of a fourth wave of the coronavirus pandemic.
According to an official, the Prime Minister will interact with the Chief Ministers on the situation related to Kovid in the country through video conferencing at 12 noon today. Union Health Secretary Rajesh Bhushan will also make a presentation in the conference.
In a tweet on Tuesday, PM Modi said, “Tomorrow at 12 noon on April 27, will hold talks with state chief ministers to review the COVID-19 situation.”
This has come in view of the possibility of a fourth wave of the epidemic in India in view of the increasing cases of Kovid-19 in the country. Delhi is the worst-hit by the latest spike in virus cases in the country with over 1,000 cases alone for five consecutive days.
However, eminent virologist and former Christian Medical College (CMC) Vellore professor Dr T Jacob John has said that the chances of a fourth wave of corona virus in the country are “extremely low”.
