Modi says the corona vaccine will be ready in a few weeks, the first vaccine to be given to sick, elderly, and health workers:
The government today held an all-party meeting on Korona. The meeting was chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi via video conference. In which Modi said 8 important things about the corona vaccine. In it, PM Modi had hinted that the vaccine would not be free in India. On the one hand, he did not utter the word ‘free’ anywhere in his speech, on top of which he also said that the price of the vaccine would be decided jointly by the Center and the state government. Of course, no official announcement has been made yet, but from the way PM Modi is talking, it is clear that the government will one way or another charge us for the vaccine. Many countries, including the United States and Canada, have announced free vaccines for their countries.
He said there was no need to wait for the corona vaccine, the vaccine would be ready in a few weeks. This is Modi’s first and most important meeting after discussions with vaccine companies. That said, the corona vaccine will be ready in a few weeks, the first vaccine will be given to the sick, the elderly, and health workers.
Important points of Modi’s speech :
No doubt of success
Indian scientists are confident of their success and their confidence is strong. The world’s eye is on the safest low-cost vaccine. Naturally, the eyes of the world are also on India. Going to Ahmedabad, Pune, and Hyderabad, I saw how the preparations for vaccine manufacturing are. Coordinating with ICMR and global industry giants. All waistbands are ready. There are about 8 potential vaccines, which are in different stages of the trial, manufactured in India.
No more waiting for the vaccine :
The trial of 3 different vaccines in India is in different stages. Experts believe that there is no need to wait for the vaccine. The vaccine is expected to be ready in the next few weeks. Vaccination will be started in India as soon as the scientists get the green light. The Center is also working on the suggestion of the states as to who will be vaccinated in the first phase. Priority will be given to healthcare workers, frontline workers, and those who are already battling serious illnesses.
We are better than in other countries :
The Center and the state team are also working together on the distribution of vaccines. We are the best compared to other countries. We have the world’s largest and most experienced network for vaccinations. Any further need is also being assessed. Efforts are underway to strengthen the cold chain. India has developed special software in which the beneficiaries of the corona vaccine can get real-time information related to the vaccine. The National Expert Group has been given the responsibility of the campaign linked to the corona vaccine. The group is working closely with state governments. Decisions will be made from this group according to national and local needs.
Price decision pending :
The question of the cost of the vaccine is also natural. The Center is in talks with the states in this regard. The decision will be taken by giving top priority to public health. India today is one of the countries where testing is increasing day by day. India is one of the countries where recovery rate is high and the mortality rate is declining. The manner in which we fought the Corona shows the will of every countryman. India has fought the battle better than the developed countries.
Avoid rumors :
We are not only concerned about the citizens of our country, but also working to help other countries. India has embarked on a long journey amidst the atmosphere of confidence and hope in December, starting with the anticipatory atmosphere of February-March. Now that the vaccine is ready, the same public participation is needed. Suggestions from all your experienced colleagues will also play a role in this from time to time. When such a big vaccination campaign is going on, many rumors are spread in society. This is against the public interest and the national interest. It is the responsibility of all parties to awaken the citizens of the country and protect them from rumors.
1.39 lakh people die due to an epidemic in the country :
So far, 95.71 lakh cases have been registered, out of which 90.15 lakh have been cured and 1.39 lakh people have died. A total of 4.14 lakh active cases have been registered, which means that so many patients are undergoing treatment. This figure is the lowest since July 21. There were a total of 4.12 lakh active cases then.
First 10 million healthcare workers and then 20 million frontline workers will be vaccinated :
News NGC quoted sources as saying that the presentation given at the meeting said that the first 10 million health workers would be vaccinated. It will include not only the government but also private sector health workers. Then 20 million frontline workers will be vaccinated. Frontline workers will include policemen, army personnel, and municipal workers.
