India is reeling under a second wave or rather 'tsunami' of coronavirus cases. Daily infection cases have been topping the 1 lakh mark for the past several days. The situation is particularly bad in states like Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh. National capital Delhi is also witnessing a precarious situation forcing the government strict restrictions. The second Covid surge is spreading much rapidly than the first one, however, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in his address to the nation last week after a virtual meeting with CMs of several states, emphasised that the focus should be on small containment zones. He urged the states to focus on 'test, track, treat' and vaccination to arrest the spiralling graph. On India TV Swasthya Sammelan 2021, health ministers will discuss the best ways to deal with the crisis and contain the spread of the deadly virus.
