Talking about the gravity of the virus, Modi said: “It has been four months the world is fighting COVID19. More than 42 lakh people from different countries have been infected by COVID-19. More than 2.75 lakh people have lost their lives due to the virus. In India too many families have lost their dear ones, I express my condolences to them.”

The path to this is one — self-dependent India,” the Prime Minister said in an address to the nation. He said that the COVID-19 crisis has brought an “opportunity for India”. “As a nation today, we stand at a very important juncture. Such a big disaster has brought a signal to India.
