Bengaluru: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday, June 1 appreciated state government for its handling of coronavirus situations in the state.

“I would also like to appreciate the efforts of the Karnataka government in handling the Covid-19 situation,” said PM Modi.

“Virus may be the invisible enemy but our corona warriors are invincible and in the battle against the invisible versus invincible our medical workers are sure to win,” Modi said while inaugurating through a video link the silver jubilee celebrations of the Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences here.

Modi urged people to deliberate and ideate on telemedicine, how to make gains in the health sector through ”Make in India” and how to incorporate more IT services into healthcare.

Karnataka Chief Minister B.S. Yediyurappa, Governor Vajubhai Vala, Medical Education Minister K. Sudhakar, Deputy Chief Minister C. N. Ashwathnarayan were among those who participated in the event.

On Sunday, the southern state”s Covid tally crossed 3,000-mark to settle at 3,221 cases, significantly lower than many other states.

Had it not been for several returnees from others state”s, especially from Maharashtra, who account for a lion”s share of new infections, Karnataka”s tally would have been significantly lower.

Unlike before, the number of people contracting the virus from infected contacts has plummeted.

Similarly, Karnataka has also witnessed only 51 Covid deaths, though the first such death in the country occurred in this state.
