Addressing the nation from the iconic Red Fort in Delhi on India completing 73 years of Independence, PM Modi said the roadmap for the production of coronavirus vaccine and its fair distribution to every Indian in the least amount of time is ready.
PM Modi said, “Three coronavirus vaccines are at different testing stages in India. The road map for its production and distribution among the Indians is also ready. The government will ensure every Indian gets the vaccine against coronavirus.”
“As soon as the scientists give a green signal, the country will begin their large-scale production of the coronavirus vaccine,” PM Narendra Modi said, adding, “We will announce the roadmap for its distribution as soon as it gets final clearances.”
PM Modi said the government would soon announce the National Digital Health Mission under which, every citizen would get a health ID. “National Digital Health Mission will bring a new revolution in India’s health sector,” PM Modi said, adding, “Health updates will be logged in the health ID on every visit to a pharmacy or a doctor.”
“Every Indian will have his own health ID. This ID will have all details like disease, treatment, doctors, hospital visits, payment details, medicine he/she using,” PM Modi said.
PM Narendra Modi also lauded the efforts put in by the healthcare workers and other Corona Warriors who have been relentlessly battling the coronavirus pandemic since the threat was reported in the country in January.
