Lockdown not permanent solution against Covid-19: Rahul

New Delhi, April 16 (IANS) Two days after Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced extension of lockdown measures for another 19 days, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Thursday said that the restrictions are only a pause button to curb the spread of the coronavirus but will not defeat the deadly disease.

Addressing a presser through video conferencing here, he appealed to all the political parties to work unitedly in the fight against Covid-19.

The Congress leader urged the Centre to revamp the testing ability and make arrangements for a sufficient number of ventilators.

He added that the lockdown is not a permanent solution to stop the virus, but the need of the hour is to test to identify those who have contracted the infection.
