Some talk of 70800. 70800000000 Indians and some indicated for two in depth in India. See what the situation in countries that have art and modern health infrastructure I think it was natural for the world to be concerned about developing countries like India, You can imagine what state of mind we at that time, however, in India did not let disappointment get the better of India. Move forward with an approach of proactive public participation we use focused on developing specific health infrastructure We train our human resources to fight against Corona and made full use of technology for testing and tracking each and every. India fulfill the duties with patients and transform the fight of Corona into a people’s movement today, India is among those countries, which has been successful in saving the lives of the maximum number of its citizens and a country where the number of infected people as the mighty ministered by professor is decreasing rapidly friends.
