Solutions Summit: Trinamool leader Derek O'Brien says "Keep 3 priorities - vaccine, vaccine and vaccine"
There is only one way to tackle the raging Covid-19 pandemic, according to Trinamool leader Derek O'Brien, and that is to prioritise three things: "Vaccine, vaccine, and vaccine". He, however, firmly blamed the central government's politics for matters worsening.
West Bengal yesterday reported 7,713 new Covid-19 cases and 34 deaths, taking the overall figures to 6.51 lakh infections and 10,540 fatalities. The state is also in the middle of a tightly fought Assembly election, with massive rallies ad roadshows being held by all political sides, mostly ignoring the pandemic protocol.
Senior Congress leader Rahul Gandhi today tweeted saying he was suspending all public rallies in the state under these circumstances. He also advised other political leaders to avoid holding such events.
