He said, “The way we are moving very fast in the corona vaccination campaign. Suppose from this, we will increase the participation of private sector in it in a few days. It is just a matter of few days. Wait a little. “
Details of large-scale participation of private sector in COVID-19 vaccination campaign will be available in a few days. This information was given by Dr. VK Paul, member of NITI Aayog and head of Corona Task Force while talking to Granthshala. He informed that till now more than 1.07 crore vaccine doses have been sent to health workers and frontline workers. Dr. Paul said that at present also the private sector has been included prominently in the corona vaccination campaign for health workers and frontline workers. In this campaign, 2,000 out of 10,000 vaccination sessions are being conducted on any day with private sector participation. He said, “The way we are moving very fast in the corona vaccination campaign. Suppose from this, we will increase the participation of private sector in it in a few days. It is just a matter of few days. Wait a little. “
Nearly 14,000 new cases of corona infection in the country in the last 24 hours, 101 deaths
The member of the NITI Aayog said, “Full participation of private sector will be necessary in the COVID-19 vaccination campaign. Because it will provide employment to more and more people of the population. Right now only health workers and frontline workers are being vaccinated. But there are also many people who are still avoiding vaccination, while the government has repeatedly clarified that this vaccine is completely safe. This is a matter of concern for us. ” He said that he is very happy to start the process of approving the emergency use of Russian Corona vaccine ‘Sputnik-V’ in India. The ‘Sputnik-V’ is being co-reviewed and tested in India by the Lancet Medical Journal and is being produced at Doctor Reddy Laboratories. Currently, two vaccines are being administered to the health workers and frontline workers in the vaccination campaign, one of which is the Covishield of Serum Institute of India and the other is the BioVotech’s Covaxine.
Speed of second dose of Corona vaccine in the country slowed
Dr. Paul said, for Sputnik, an application has been made by Dr. Reddy Laboratories to the Drug Controller of India (DGCI) to start the process. We want to take this process forward very fast, because we want more options in the form of vaccines. ” The Russian vaccine ‘Sputnik-V’ has been tested on 36,000 people, of which 33,000 are Russian citizens. Apart from this, it is being studied in India and UAE. In India, ‘Sputnik-V’ has been tested on 1,600 people. Dr. Paul said, in some states like Maharashtra and Punjab, cases of COVID-19 have increased in recent times. At least 240 new strains of coronovirus have been reported in India, which is much higher than the previous week’s figures.
