"We have assured full support to the state governments. In fact, the Ministry has already issued three advisories to the state governments over the last one month and held a video conference with them to review their strategy and plans," they said.

The officials said that there was sufficient stock of drugs, testing kits and masks. In addition to that, around 7,000 diagnostic kits have already been distributed among various government labs and 15,000 more kits will be provided to them.
