"Jab tak dawai nahi, tab tak dhilai nahi": PM Narendra Modi cautions over coronavirus case surge
New Delhi : Prime Minister Narendra Modi cautioned people amid rising cases of coronavirus in India, asking them to stay alert and do not be careless till the time a medicine is found. While addressing people in Madhya Pradesh, he released a new slogan - "Jab tak dawai nahi, tab tak dhilai nahi. Do gaj ki doori, mask hai jaroori (No carelessness till a medicine is found, mask and maintaining distance of two yards is necessary)."
PM Modi was addressing the virtual housewarming ceremony of 1.75 lakh houses built in rural parts of the state under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY).
In India, nearly 1 lakh new coronavirus cases are being reported daily. Earlier this week, India came onto the second position, surpassing Brazil, on the tally of world's worst hit countries with the virus. Some experts have claimed that soon India will come on the top spot and will leave United States behind.
India currently has over 46.5 lakh cases including over 77,000 deaths.
From the first day when coronavirus case was reported in India, PM Narendra Modi has been stressing on the fact of maintaining social distancing and use of mask while in talking to people.
The virus, which has infected millions across the world, currently has no cure. Doctors across the globe have been using several experimental procedures to save patients from the disease that mostly kills people with co-morbidities.
Multiple companies are trying to make a vaccine which can be used to prevent people from coronavirus.
