Amitabh Kant – CEO, NITI Aayog:
- 15 cities now contribute 50% of India’s cases.
- Cities/Districts such as Kamrup Metropol., East Godavari, North 24 Parganas are some of the new entrants- an indication that cases are spilling over into newer locations.
- Testing, Tracing & Treating (3T) must be ramped up here.
- 7 out of the top 15 high case load cities report a recovery rate which is higher than the national average.
- Delhi now has an impressive recovery rate of 87%.
- Ramped up testing, rigorous tracing and timely treatment is our only vaccine against COVID19 for now.
- We must fight on!
