Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday interacted with the healthcare workers of the state and the beneficiaries of the Covid vaccine through video conferencing after all adults in Goa received the first dose of the corona vaccine. The PM appreciated all the doctors, medical staff, people of the administration for the record vaccination. Also targeted the opposition on vaccine politics. He said that while taking a jibe at the opposition, he said that he has heard that very few people who take the vaccine have a reaction. Fever comes. It is also said that if there is too much fever, then the mental balance also goes away. This is what doctors tell people. For the first time, I am seeing that yesterday more than 2.5 crore people got the vaccine and after 12 o’clock in the night the reaction of a political party came. Their fever has gone up. Could there be any logic to this?
Praising the health workers and people associated with vaccination, the PM said that with your efforts, India made a record of vaccinating 2.5 crore people in a single day. Even big rich and powerful countries are not able to do this.
He said, “We saw how the eyes of the country were on the Co-Vin dashboard yesterday. More than 1.5 million doses were administered every hour, more than 26000 doses every minute and 425 people were vaccinated every second yesterday.”
The Prime Minister said that I am happy that before the Ganpati immersion, all the eligible people of Goa have taken the first dose of Jeevan Raksha Sutra that is vaccine. For this my congratulations to all the people. Goa strengthens the spirit of ‘Ek Bharat, Shreshtha Bharat’. If Manohar Parrikar (former Chief Minister of Goa) had been among us on this occasion, he would have been proud of your achievement. Many thanks to Corona Warriors and others for maintaining the pace of vaccination amidst all the natural calamities.
