India Administers Over One Billion Covid Vaccine Doses


India has reason to celebrate today as it had now administered a lot of the dozes. This is the reason for more than the best things at hand. India is successful in giving out 1 billion doses of Covid-19 vaccines.

This is done in a short period of time since they had started its very ambitious vaccination program in January of this year. So if we look into it, that’s not much of a time period and a lot of doses have been administered.

According to the Government data that had been shown to the media is stating that 708 million people or if something of a percentage around 75% of the entire population was eligible to get the vaccine dose and out of the eligible population the number that has received at least one dose of vaccine is more around 30% but they are the ones that are now fully inoculated against the disease. But there is a catch that only those people who are above the age of 18 are currently allowed to receive the vaccine.

“This achievement that we are now seeing belongs to India, every citizen of India,” the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi said on Twitter, “I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to all of the vaccine manufacturing companies that are working in the situation of the country, to all the hundreds of workers who are also engaged in vaccine transportation, also many thanks to the health sector professionals engaged in vaccine development.” His original post was in Hindi but this is a rough translation of the same thing that he posted on Twitter.

India did suffer a lot of deaths between the months of February And May. A lot of people lost their lives because of the deadly second wave. That was a period of great sadness for the people. The government failed to provide the help that they needed.

This was a very grim situation that India had recovered from, so today is indeed a day to celebrate the milestone that they have reached. We sure want to look forward to more good news like this one. It makes us happy!
