Lockdown was timed rightly in India: Dr Harsh Vardhan

Praising India's efforts in control coronavirus, Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan asserted that India's lockdown was imposed at the right time.

"Lockdown was imposed in India at the right time.

Other developed countries wasted many days to take this decision.

In some countries when situation went out of control they took the decision of lockdown and in most places it was partial lockdown," said Union Health Minister.
