New Delhi: India Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday said experience shows no nation can solve challenges like Coronavirus in isolation.
“There is no parallel to such a pandemic in a hundred years. Experience shows that no nation, however powerful that nation is, can solve a challenge like this in isolation,” he said while speaking at CoWin conclave.
Stating that Indian civilization considers the whole world as one family, he said, “This pandemic has made many people realize the fundamental truth of this philosophy. That is why, our technology platform for Covid vaccination –– the platform we call CoWin –– is being prepared to be made open source.
Reopening places of worship across faith is one of the main highlights of several relaxations announced to the curbs that were in place in Karnataka to mitigate the spread of the COVID since the beginning of the second wave.
“Religious places are allowed to open only for darshan. No Sevas (rituals that involve devotees) will be allowed,” Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa announced as he spelled out revised guidelines to be in effect from Monday (July 5). Places of worship in the state have remained closed to pilgrims since the last week of April this year.
Meanwhile, India recorded 39,796 COVID cases and 723 deaths in the last 24 hours, according to data from the Health Ministry of India.
