During the presser through video conferencing held today, Rahul Gandhi said – lockdown is not a permanent solution to stop the virus, but the need of the hour is to test and identify those who have contracted the infection.
Meanwhile, ABP News in a tweet misquoted the former Congress President. The news organisation in Hindi wrote, “Rahul Gandhi said lockdown won’t stop coronavirus. I have spoken to global experts.” However Gandhi had said, “In no way does a lockdown defeat the virus. It just stops it for some time. The biggest weapon against it is testing.”
