India has crossed the mark of 22 Lakh cases so far, and there’s no sign or indication that the spreading of the virus will stop until more stringent measures are taken.

The Prime Minister held a video conference with the Chief Ministers of several states today, where he reviewed the situation of Coronavirus in that state.

Talking about the situation in the country, the Prime Minister said 10 states contribute to 80% of the cases in the country, and if these 10 states control the spreading of the virus, then India can soon win the fight against this pandemic.

These 10 states include Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Bihar, Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh, Telangana, Punjab, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and West Bengal.

The Prime Minister has also advised the states of Bihar, Gujarat, UP, West Bengal, and Telangana to ramp up their testing, and to better control the situation of Coronavirus in these states.
