Prime Minister Narendra Modi interacted with the floor leaders of all parties in Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha over the country’s response to COVID-19 and said the pandemic should not be a “matter of politics and is a matter of concern for the entire humanity”.
“PM informed leaders about the rising speed of India’s vaccination program and how the first 10 crore doses took around 85 days while the last 10 crore doses have taken 24 days. He also informed the leaders that the daily closing stocks show an average of more than 1.5 crore vaccines at the end of the day throughout the country,” the Ministry of Parliamentary Affairs said in a statement.
PM Modi said the vaccination drives at the district level should be properly planned on the basis of availability indicated by the Centre to ensure there is no inconvenience to people.
He expressed concerns that a large number of healthcare and frontline workers remains unvaccinated even six months after the drive started.
