Dr. Poonam Khetarpal Singh, Regional Director of South East Asia of WHO (World Health Organization) has said that India has been active from the very beginning regarding Covid-19. India is constantly expanding its preparedness and response standards, including preparing hospitals, arranging medicines and enhancing testing capacity.
Dr. Khetrapal said, ‘We are familiar with the variation in these capabilities at the state level in India. Such a situation is not uncommon in a country with large area and large population like India. The measures that have been taken may often not be equally adequate in all areas. There is a constant need in India to increase capacity and responsiveness’.
