Prime Minister Narendra Modi Addresses the Nation: Key Points | India News


NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the nation since the country registers a downward trend in Covid-19 cases.
Here are the Highlight:
* India is witnessing the second wave of Covid-19 and we are still struggling.
* This is the biggest epidemic in the last hundred years, it is a tragedy. The modern world had neither seen nor experienced such an epidemic. Our country has fought together on many fronts with such a huge global pandemic.
* During the second wave, the demand for medical oxygen in India increased unimaginably in April and May. Never in the history of India has there been such a need for medical oxygen.
* To satisfy this need, they worked on a war footing. The entire machinery of government was compromised.
* Compared to the demand for vaccines around the world today, the countries that produce the vaccine and the companies that manufacture the vaccine are smaller.
* Imagine if we did not have a vaccine made in India, what would have happened today in a huge country like ours?
* If you look at the last 50-60 years of India, it used to take decades to get vaccines that are developed abroad. We were unable to start vaccination in India even though vaccination work was completed abroad.
* India released not one, but two ‘Made in India’ vaccines within one year. Our scientists have shown that India is not lagging behind the big countries. More than 23 crore doses of vaccine have been administered in India.
* Due to the continuous effort and hard work that the country has been doing, the supply of vaccines will increase in the coming days.
* Today seven companies in the country are producing different types of vaccines. The trial of three more vaccines is at an advanced stage.
