India Gives 20 Million Covid Vaccine Injections On Modi’s Birthday

Must read

India’s far-reaching effort to vaccinate its vast population against Covid-19 reached another milestone on Friday: Its health ministry said a record 20 million injections had been administered in nine hours, a special push to commemorate. Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s birthday and celebrating his 20 years in public service.

That’s more than double its previous daily record (9.3 million shots, reached Sept. 2) and more than six times the level reported three months ago. according to the Our World in Data project of the University of Oxford.

Leaders of India’s ruling Bharatiya Janata Party said states under their control had long tried to maximize the vaccination campaign as a birthday present for Modi, who turned 71 on Friday.

“Good health is indeed wealth and a great way to celebrate PM @NarendraModi ji’s birthday,” Indian Federal Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya wrote on Twitter. Videos of the prime minister were distributed showing him distributing sweets to health workers.

India has administered more than 784 million vaccine injections through a campaign that had major setbacks in its early stages, although it inoculated a population of 1.4 billion people, which extended from the Himalayas to the coasts, which always went to be a challenge. Momentum has gained considerable momentum in recent weeks.

The country is now registering more than 30,000 new cases of Covid-19 a day. With a total of more than 33 million total cases during the pandemic, the number of reported cases is only surpassed by those of the United States, and India was the third country to exceed 400,000 deaths. Scientists widely believe that official figures vastly underestimate the number of victims.

On Friday, the eastern state of Bihar, which is home to about 127 million people and is one of the poorest regions in the country, gave 1.8 million injections, more than any other state, authorities said.

In Mumbai, the financial capital of India, civic authorities organized a special vaccination campaign for women and many lined up to receive vaccines.

Health Ministry officials say they plan to administer more than 1 billion injections by mid-October. China, the only other country with a population of more than a billion people, has already far exceeded that number, reporting 2.16 billion shots. according to Our World in Data.
