These are the highlights:
* This has been the largest pandemic in the last 100 years and during this very pandemic, India has bravely faced many natural disasters.
* Meanwhile, there was Cyclone Amphan and Cyclone Nisarg. Many states had floods, there were minor and major earthquakes, there were landslides.
* The people who led the rescue and relief work deserve more recognition than can be expressed. I greet you all. My heart goes out to all the people who have lost loved ones and close ones.
* My dear compatriots, however great the challenge, India’s resolve for victory, its Vijay-Sankalp has always been equal in magnitude. Their collective strength and our spirit of service have always rescued the country from all storms.
Folks, when the second wave came, the demand for oxygen suddenly increased. This was a great challenge. Providing medical oxygen to remote parts of the country was a huge task.
* If an oxygen tanker is moving fast, the slightest mistake can lead to the risk of a large explosion. Many industrial oxygen manufacturing plants are located in the eastern part of the country, transporting oxygen from there to other states in the country takes many days.
* To meet this challenge, the country had the help of cryogenic tanker truck drivers, Oxygen Express pilots and the Air Force.
* Mothers and sisters would be proud to know that an ‘Oxygen Express’ is being run by women. Every woman in the country will be proud of that. Not only that, all Indians will be proud.
* On the one hand, Air Force planes transport empty tanker trucks to oxygen plants, on the other hand, construction work on new oxygen plants is also being completed.
* Along with that, oxygen, oxygen concentrators and cryogenic tanks from abroad are also being introduced to the country. For this reason, the Navy, the Air Force, the Army and our institutions such as DRDO are also involved in this task.
* At the beginning of Corona, there was only one testing laboratory in the country, but today there are more than 2,500 laboratories in operation.
* Initially only a few hundred Covid tests could be performed in one day, now more than 20 lakhs of tests are performed in a single day.
* There are countless front-line workers engaged in specimen collection work, going in the midst of infected patients, and taking your sample is an example of labor service.
