Coronavirus has increased disturbingly both in spread, speed since past three weeks: #SoniaGandhi

New Delhi: Congress Working Committee meeting is underway in Delhi. During the meeting, Congress chief Sonia Gandhi said the ‘pandemic has increased disturbingly, both in spread and speed’. Trade, commerce, industry have come to virtual halt and crores of livelihoods have been destroyed says Sonia Gandhi on coronavirus lockdown.

12 cr jobs lost in first phase of lockdown; unemployment likely to increase further as economic activity remains at standstill says Sonia Gandhi .

It is imperative to provide at least Rs 7,500 to each family to tide over crisis caused by coronavirus lockdown says Sonia Gandhi.

Since our meeting three weeks ago, the pandemic has increased disturbingly – both in spread & speed. Sections of our society face acute hardship-particularly kisans-khet mazdoors, migrant labour, construction workers & in unorganized sector: Sonia Gandhi at CWC meeting. I offered our constructive cooperation & suggestions. Unfortunately, they have been acted upon only partially and in a miserly way. The compassion, large-heartedness and alacrity from the Central Government is conspicuous by its absence says Sonia Gandhi at CWC meeting.

We have repeatedly urged the Prime Minister that there is no alternative to Testing, Trace and Quarantine. Unfortunately, testing still remains low and testing kits are still in short supply and of poor quality. PPE kits number and quality is poor says Sonia Gandhi.

There are a few success stories & we should applaud them. Most of all we should salute every single Indian leading the fight against the #COVID19 pandemic in spite of the absence of adequate personal protection equipment said Congress President Sonia Gandhi at CWC meeting. The doctors, nurses, paramedics, health workers, sanitation workers and essential service providers, NGOs and the lakhs of citizens providing relief to the most needy all over India, their dedication and determination truly inspire us all said Congress President Sonia Gandhi.
