On the launch of India’s “landmark” Covid-19 vaccination drive Bhutanese Prime Minister Lotay Tshering congratulated Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Bhutan Prime Minister Lotay Tshering congratulated and shared his thoughts on his official Twitter handle – “I would like to congratulate PM @narendramodi and the people of India for the landmark launch of nationwide COVID-19 vaccination drive today,”
PM Tshering further added- “We hope it comes as an answer to pacify all the sufferings we have endured this pandemic.”
PM Modi thanked for his good wished and replied- “Thank you @PMBhutan! A vaccine, which was earlier believed to be impossible in such a short time period has become a reality thanks to the efforts of our scientists, doctors, and innovators,” he tweeted.
India already began the world’s largest Covid-19 vaccination program where Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the drive. PM Modi further aimed that this is the end of the pandemic and so far the infected case is 1,05,42,841 people and killed 1,52,093 others in the country.
The Oxford University and AstraZeneca have produced ‘Covishield’, which has been made in India by Serum Institute of India in Pune while Bharat Biotech has developed ‘Covaxin’.
While addressing the people of India through video platforms the Prime Minister stated that India managed to make two ‘Made-in-India’ vaccines in a very short period which usually takes years. The Drug Controller General of India earlier this month approved ‘Covishield’ and ‘Covaxin’ vaccines for emergency use.
