Taking to Twitter on the occasion of World Health Day, Modi said, ‘On #WorldHealthDay, let us keep the focus on fighting COVID-19 by taking all possible precautions including wearing a mask, regularly washing hands and following the other protocols.’

At the same time, do take all possible steps to boost immunity and stay fit, he added.

The Government of India, the Prime Minister said, is taking numerous measures, including Ayushman Bharat and PM Janaushadhi Yojana to ensure people get access to top quality and affordable healthcare.

‘India is also conducting the world’s largest vaccination drive to strengthen the fight against COVID-19,’ he added.
