Amid the sharp rise in COVID-19 cases across the country, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has decided to hold a review meeting with chief ministers of all states and Union territories on January 13.

The meeting will be held at 4:30 pm via video conferencing “on the COVID-19 related situation”, Prasar Bharti, the central government’s official media arm, tweeted.

The decision to hold virtual interaction with the CMs comes three days after the prime minister held a video-conference with top ministers and bureaucrats to review the pandemic situation in the country.

The meeting, held virtually on January 9, was attended by Union Home Minister Amit Shah and Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya, along with the aviation secretary, the home secretary, and the cabinet secretary among others.
