India did it …. We have administered a billion jabs of the Covid vaccine !! Its a billion jabs of hope, of beating back the Wuhan virus. What an outstanding achievement. Every Indian has contributed in this achievement – either as a front line health worker, doctor, scientist or just a citizen who got vaccinated.
This stupendous feat started as the World’s Largest Vaccination Drive in Jan 2021. Its not only the largest but also the fastest vaccination drive. See the following infographics that tell the story –
Another infographic that speaks to the speed of the vaccination drive in India –
We have had our share of doomsday predictors and naysayers. Sometimes it feels like everyone is waiting for India to fail. The pandemic has tested every single political leader in the world and am thrilled that Mr. Modi tops the list of world leaders, in the way he has handled this crisis.
There is a telling infographic that shows how long some vaccines took to reach India…. here we have a “Made in India” vaccine and we have managed to manufacture enough for 1 billion doses to be administered. What’s not to like about this statistic 🧐.
12 years was the prediction, 12 months will be the reality – #ModiHaiToMumkinHai. Don’t like it? Too bad. There are millions who like it 😁.
New Records besides the Billion Jabs
The good news continues, as shown in the following infographic.
Its not a typo, we did use drones to deliver vaccines. However much you dislike the CoWin app, it works really well and several countries are now wanting to implement the same system.
For the first time after a really long time (800+ years), India is becoming a leader again and shaking off its follower status. That is the real thing to celebrate !
Jai Hind 🇮🇳
