The recent spike in Coronavirus cases in the Northeastern states has raised an alarm in the nation. In the wake of surging cases, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will chair an official Covid Review meeting with Chief Ministers of North Eastern States. 

Northeastern States of Assam, Nagaland, Tripura, Manipur, Meghalaya, Arunachal Pradesh, Mizoram, and Sikkim are invited for attending the high-level Covid Review meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The meeting will be held virtually, there is a potential threat of the third wave which may emerge if precautions are not taken care of. Official sources state that on 13 July, PM Modi will virtually interact with the Chief Ministers at 11 am. Health ministry representatives, NITI Aayog, home ministry, and other relevant ministries will also be attending the meeting. 

Union cabinet secretary Rajiv Gauba’s interacted with the officials of the northeastern states’ home department recently. Now, when the covid cases are dropping across the nation, the rising rate in the North Eastern States is a huge concern for the country. 

The ministry of health and family welfare (MoHFW) said that 90 districts are showing about 80%of covid 19 cases. The majority of the cases are from the North Eastern States. 

Union health secretary Rajesh Bhushan recently pointed out that the state of Arunachal Pradesh has a weekly positivity rate of 16.2% which is showing an upward trend and thus pose a huge concern.

The high rate of positivity rate in the NE region and in the States of Kerala and Maharashtra, have slowed the declining rate. Now when the States are showing a rising positivity rate, the Central government is worried because a similar pattern of rising cases was witnessed before the second wave of Covid 19 hit the States like Punjab, Maharashtra, Kerala, and Gujarat
