India ready to produce mass vaccines when scientists give go-ahead, Modi
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that India is ready to produce coronavirus vaccines at a large scale when scientists give the go-ahead.
PM Modi said this during the Independence Day speech on Saturday.
According to the international news agency, Modi identified health and economic self-reliance as the government’s priorities.
He said, “Not one, not two, as many as three coronavirus vaccines are being tested in India”.
“Along with mass-production, the roadmap for distribution of vaccine to every single Indian in the least possible time is also ready,” Modi said. “The country is also ready for mass production of those vaccines.”
In addition to this, he also launched a National Digital Health Mission for India worth 1.3 billion.
“Technology will be judiciously used to reduce challenges in treatments,” he said.
“Whether it is making a doctor’s appointment, depositing money, or running around for documents in the hospital, the mission will help remove all such challenges.”
