He once again reiterated that unlike other countries, India has been successful to a great extent in preventing the corona infection. 'When we look at other countries, then we realize our achievements. Our population is manifold compared to other countries and the challenges are different but in spite of this, the coronavirus did not spread as fast as other countries. The fatality rate is also notably low.' PM Modi said.
