“This must be a lesson for all of us,” Paul, who is also the NITI Aayog member for health, said.

“We are very fortunate that our trend is in the opposite direction. We are fortunate that today we are showing a decline of the (Covid-19) pandemic, except in two or three states. This decline is particularly noteworthy because in other countries of the northern hemisphere there is a severe increase in the intensity of pandemic,” he said.
