The Union Health Minister Dr Mansukh Mandaviya held a meeting with State health ministers on the COVID-19 situation and preparedness. And all states and Union Territories have been asked to focus on ‘Test-Track-Treat &Vaccination’.

The latest update comes after the surge in the number of Covid-19 cases in the countries like China, Japan, South Korea, France, and Brazil.
