New Delhi, Apr 23: The government acted on our suggestions regarding coronavirus only partially, Congress president, Sonia Gandhi said.

She also said that certain sections of society, like farm, labourers and migrant labourers are facing hardship. The same could be said about the construction workers and those in the organised sector, she also said. Trade and commerce and industry have come to a virtual halt, she also said.

We have repeatedly urged the PM that there is no alternative to testing, trace and quarantine. Unfortunately, testing still remains low and testing kits are still in short supply.

The PPE kits number and quality is poor, she further added.
