    WHO Big Applause for India’s 750 Mn Covid-19 Vax Milestone

    World Health Organisation (WHO ) has heaped praises as India’s cumulative vaccination coverage against the coronavirus disease (Covid-19) on Monday surpassed the 75 crore-mark. The latest update on world’s largest vaccination drive was revealed through an official statement by the Union ministry of health and family welfare.

    Applauding the effort World Health Organisation’s (WHO) South-East Asia regional director Dr Poonam Khetrapal Singh congratulated India for achieving the feat at an ‘unprecedented pace’ through the microblogging site.

    “While it took 85 days to administer the first 100 million (10 crore) doses, India reached 750 million (75 crore) doses from 650 million (65 crore) in just 13 days,” she was quoted as saying in a tweet by WHO South-East Asia.

    Union health minister Mansukh Mandaviya also took to the micro-blogging site to “congratulate India.” He further wrote that with the help of ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Prayas’ mantra of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the “world’s largest vaccination drive is constantly creating new dimensions.”

    The health minister’s message added that the feat of inoculating 75 crore of Covid-19 vaccines was achieved at the time the country celebrates ‘Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav’ on the occasion of 75th year of India’s independence.
