India has been more successful in saving lives than other developed nations, however, it's not the time to be complacent and we must work towards improving the situation, Prime Minister (PM) Narendra Modi said on October 20, in his 7th address to the nation since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.

PM Modi said the COVID-19 infection rate per 10 lakh people is much higher in countries like Brazil and the US. Similarly, the death rate in India is 83, while the UK and Spain have seen levels over 600.

India will cross the 10 crore tests mark very shortly, he said.
