“A challenging situation is emerging again. I request you all to give your suggestions to tackle the COVID-19 situation,” he said.

Addressing a virtual meeting, with numerous chief ministers of states and union territories (UT) to discuss the current situation of the COVID-19 pandemic and the ongoing vaccination drive, PM Narendra Modi said that whichever state has imposed night curfews, the authorities of those states should term it as ‘corona curfew’ in order to spread awareness.
