Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday said that till the time a vaccine is not developed for COVID-19, all have to maintain ‘do gaj ki doori’ (two yards distance) and wear face masks.

Speaking at the launch of “Atma Nirbhar Uttar Pradesh Rojgar Abhiyan”, Prime Minister Modi said, “All of us have seen ups and downs. In our social life, there have been problems. No one has thought that the whole world will face a problem at the same time. Everyone is affected and everybody has faced problems. We don’t know when we will get respite from this disease. till the time a vaccine is not developed, we know one thing that is to maintain ‘do gaj ki doori’ (two yards distance) and wear a face mask to prevent coronavirus.”

“Today I experience with you the power of work. Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyana Rojgar Abhiyaan is based on this power of work. This power has given inspiration to Atma Nirbhar Uttar Pradesh Rojgar Abhiyan,” he added.
