NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted on Tuesday that he will address the nation at 6 pm this evening.
“I will be sharing a message with my fellow citizens at 6 pm this evening. Please join the address,” the tweet read. In recent months, PM Modi addressed the nation over the COVID-19 pandemic.
आज शाम 6 बजे राष्ट्र के नाम संदेश दूंगा। आप जरूर जुड़ें। Will be sharing a message with my fellow citizens at 6 PM this evening.— Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) October 20, 2020
The Prime Minister is likely to press for adoption of COVID-appropriate behaviour at a time when India’s overall active cases are declining and the trends indicate a stable depleting trend.
India’s active cases are around 7 lakh today but could surge to 26 lakh in October alone if people don’t wear masks, keep distance and face and hand hygiene.
India’s recovery rate stands 88 per cent.
