Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said that India will win against coronavirus if 10 states defeat it. Mr. Modi said, 10 states account for over 80% of the active COVID-19 cases in the country.

The Prime Minister yesterday reviewed the Corona situation with the Chief Ministers of 10 worst affected states through video conferencing. This was the seventh such interaction with Chief Ministers on the coronavirus crisis.

He said, we need to follow a new mantra - all those who have come in contact with an infected person should be traced and tested within 72 hours. He said, experts now say if we identify COVID-19 cases within 72 hours of onset, then infection slows down to great extent.

He also added that the experience so far is that containment, contact tracing and surveillance are the most effective weapons against COVID-19. Mr. Modi said there is an urgent need to ramp up testing in Bihar, Gujarat, UP, West Bengal, and Telangana.
