A leading Indian industrial group called on the government to take the “strongest” national action, including reducing economic activity to save lives.
Reuters reported that Uday Kotak, president of the Federation of Indian Industries, issued a statement on Sunday (2nd) that India is at a critical juncture when the death toll is rising. Given that it takes time to build medical infrastructure, ” What the top leadership must do now is to formulate the largest response mechanism to cut off the chain of transmission of the coronavirus.”
Kotak is the founder and executive director of Kotak Mahindra Bank in India.
