"I appeal to you all to stress on Covid-19 testing. Our target is to do 70% RT-PCR tests. Let the number of positive cases come high, but do maximum testing. Proper sample collection is very important, it can be checked through proper governance," said PM Modi.</p> <p><strong>5. </strong>Last, but not the least, PM Modi asked CMs to hold ‘Tika Utsav’ (vaccine festival) from April 11 to April 14 to ensure optimum utilisation of their Covid-19 vaccination capability and inoculate the maximum number of eligible beneficiaries.</p>
