Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday held a meeting to review the ongoing Covid vaccination drive. Held via video-conferencing, the meeting comes days after the Central government extended the free vaccination drive to cover everyone above the age of 18 years.
The vaccination drive has gathered pace now, and the government has expressed confidence that it will have enough doses to fully vaccinate the country’s adult population by December-end.
The PM expressed satisfaction at the rising speed of vaccinations in this week and stressed that it is important to carry this momentum forward.
Ensure that the pace of testing does not go down as testing remains a very important weapon to track and contain rising infections in any region, Modi said.
He added that efforts should be made to help all countries with India’s rich tech expertise in the form of Cowin platform.
