Pointing out that the world was fighting a very strong battle against Covid-19, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said that India was much better placed than many other nations in the fight against the global pandemic.
“The world is fighting a strong battle against a global pandemic. COVID-19 is not only a physical sickness that is a threat to lives of people.
