Modi interacted virtually with chief ministers of Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Odisha, Maharashtra, and Kerala to discuss the covid-19 related situation, as during the last week 80% cases and 84% covid-19 deaths were reported from these states. “All of us are at a point where apprehensions of the third wave are continuously expressed.
