New Delhi, May 15 (TIWN) Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday stressed on localised containment strategies in states where Test Positive Rate (TPR) in districts is high and adopt "door to door testing and surveillance in rural India" to contain the spread of Covid-19.

The Prime Minister gave the direction while chairing a high-level meeting to discuss the Covid-19 and vaccination related situation in the country which is passing through the second wave of the deadly disease.  “Localised containment strategies are the need of the hour specially for states where TPR in districts is high,” said the Prime Minister, instructing that testing needs to be scaled up further, with use of both RT PCR and Rapid Tests, especially in areas with high test positivity rates.
