New Delhi: The whole world is troubled by Corona. In such a situation, all the countries are fighting this infection together. India has also helped many countries. India has exported the corona vaccine to Myanmar, Nepal, Bangladesh and Iran. Sources gave this information on Sunday. According to sources, Myanmar, Nepal and Bangladesh received one million doses of Covishield, while Iran received three lakh doses of Covaxin.
India exported corona vaccine:
Earlier on 20 September, the Indian government announced its decision to resume exports of vaccines against the coronavirus from October. Announcing the decision, Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya had said that India will resume exports of coronavirus vaccines as part of its 'Vaccine Friendship' initiative to fulfill the country's commitment to COVAX.
Let us tell you that in India, the corona vaccination campaign in the country has covered half the distance with crossing 94 crore doses. According to the target of immunization of all adults by December 31, the remaining half of the distance has to be covered in the next three and a half months.
Vaccination doses for all:
The pace of vaccination has remained slow in October as compared to September, which appears to be a major obstacle in the way of the target. On Saturday, Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya held a meeting with 19 states to increase the speed of vaccination and to remove the problems in its way.
The population of people above 18 years of age in the country is about 94 crores. At the rate of two doses per adult, 188 crore doses are needed to vaccinate all adults. A senior health ministry official said that now only 94 crore doses are needed for complete vaccination.
