UNITED NATIONS: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday said India’s grass-roots health system is helping the country ensure one of the best recovery rates in the world as he highlighted the government’s efforts to make the fight against the pandemic a people’s movement.
In his first address to the world body after India was overwhelmingly elected as non-permanent member of the UN Security Council last month, Modi said the Covid-19 pandemic has “severely tested” the resilience of all nations.

“In India, we have tried to make the fight against the pandemic a people’s movement, by combining the efforts of Government and society,” Modi said in his virtual address to the High-Level Segment of ECOSOC, which comes as the Covid-19 pandemic is ravaging the world and causing unprecedented health and economic challenges.
