CNN Had Mocked India's Covid-19 Vaccination Drive, India Reached Target Before Deadline

CNN had expressed serious doubts when the Narendra Modi government had set a target of administering 60 crore doses of Covid-19 doses by August. Two more days to go, India has already administered over 63 crore doses.

 

Before rolling out the world's largest vaccination drive against Covid-19, India had set a target of administering 60 crore doses by the end of August this year. American Leftist news channel CNN has mocked the Modi government for setting such an ambitious target. 

"That adds up to a total of 600 million shots, and Modi's government wants to complete the whole process by August. That's an incredibly ambitious undertaking, especially for a developing country with poor rural infrastructure and an inadequate public health system that is already buckling under tremendous pressure from the coronavirus," CNN has written. 

By Monday (August 30) morning, India has already administered over 63 crore doses. By the end of this month, it'll be touching 65 crore doses, five crores more than the target it had set for herself. India's vaccination drive against Covid-19 was rolled out in January this year. Covishield, manufactured by Pune-based Serum Institute of India, was the first vaccine available for use. Indigenously developed Bharat Biotech's Covaxin is also being administered. Other vaccines developed in the country are also in the pipeline.

On Friday (August 27), India administered over one crore doses in a single day, achieving the milestone for the first time. Also, the country has given at least one dose to over 50 per cent of its eligible population. On November 28 last year, Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited the Zydus Cadila, Serum Institute and Bharat Biotech's plants to take stock of the situation. 

The Union government also provided monetary help to the private companies for the capacity extension. The companies were also helped with the research work. The result is for all to see. India's vaccination drive has been a huge success.

CNN talked about 600 million shots. Have these many shots given or not, verify and relax.

For coloured iimaginations, India is beyond comprehension. That's exactly why their all attempts to degrade/denigrate Hindu culture, religion, philosophy, science, mathematics, etc. have miserably failed. They brought Thamizh vs Sanskrit Theory, Aryan Invasion Theory, Brahminical Hegemony Theory, Proto-Indo Europian Theory, etc. etc. All these theories are now gasping for life.

Comment by "Anonymous" doesn't take into account that the gap between doses increased to 84 days. As such, it is better that more people have at least one dose.

Stop misleading your AB followers. CNN was right - It was talking about full vaccination of 300 million people (300 x 2 dose = 600 ). They were right.
