As per news report of NDTV, Dr Fauci, in an interview to The Indian Express, said another most important thing in the immediate is to get supplies of oxygen, medication, PPEs. He also said looking at the magnitude of the crisis, India should look at putting together a crisis group that would meet and start getting things organised. Without naming any government, he said one of the things that should have been recognised that "victory was declared maybe too prematurely". "Well, one of the things you really need to do, to the extent that you can, is shut down temporarily the country, I think is important.
