new Delhi: The total number of corona infections in the country has crossed 9 million. Out of these, one lakh 32 thousand patients have lost their lives. In such a situation, everyone is eagerly waiting for the corona vaccine. More than 200 corona vaccine trials are going on worldwide. How long will the vaccine be in India? When the vaccine arrives, who will be given first? After all, what does the government think about the vaccine? To know the answers to all these questions, ABP News spoke to the Union Health Minister Dr. Harsh Vardhan. Read further here what the Health Minister said…
Question- When will the vaccine come?
answer– Regarding the vaccine, I have also said earlier that efforts are being made for the discovery of the vaccine and the development of science waxing associated with it. It has more than 200 waxing candidates in the world. If I say in India, 30 of these vaccine candidates are doing research in different ways. Research is being done in the industry. Research is being done in the science department. Research and work are done in different institutes. The government is handholding them in every way. Out of these 30 states, now 5 candidates should assume that they have reached the phase of clinical trial. There are also 5 of them who will complete this phase in Phase 3 of the clinical trial and in the coming few months. One will probably go on trial next month and one in a few months. And the rest is also in different stages. In order to keep them updated to monitor all these, the government has formed an expert group in which an expert group headed by NITI Aayog health member BK Pal and our Health Secretary has been formed and connected to it. Hue group is also in it. Not only with the manufacturer or developer of waxing, but research is also being done on how to deliver the vaccine to the people when the vaccine arrives. Our own estimate is that after 2021, the first two-three months the vaccine will start being available for people to apply. The big guess is that by the month of July August, if we add 20 to 25 crore people and add a month to it, then up to 300 million people will be successful in giving vaccines to the people of the country. If everything goes according to plan and everything goes on expectation and all the indications that are being received still pass.
Question- When will the vaccine come and whom will it be given before, with regard to any plan?
answerIt is not right to name any one but as I said which is the vaccine which will be available in the next few months, 400 to 500 million doses as I have said earlier, we hope to make it available to the people by the month of July. Will take So how big is a country, everyone can also be put together, but that vaccine should be available for that. Research is being done all over the world on the vaccine, WHO is also making efforts in which there is also provision pulling and distribution. There is also talk on how to divide the vaccine in the world. Since not everyone can get a single dose, it is important to prioritize them from a scientific point of view. Which our expert committee has analyzed what is happening at the international level, the first priority is definitely the health care workers. Health workers i.e. those who work in government hospitals are in the government health system and also in private. After this, there are frontline workers in the property, they have also contributed a lot, including policemen, paramilitary force or Municipal Corporation who work in the worker field. Then after that there are elderly people and among elderly people, a category is older than 65 years. Then after that the category is such that is between 50 years to 65 years because it has been seen that a large number of people who were sick or died were between 50 and 65. After that it is natural that those who are less than 50, but already suffering from some disease, they will also be considered. The state government has been asked to make their list according to priority group. Now it is being asked to upload it on our electronic platform. Preparation is complete.
Suppose if such a vaccine becomes available that the whole country can be put together, then the whole country will be installed. We have been vaccinating the country for years. Our immunization program is running. We are applying 12 vaccines to children. Polio vaccines are given to people near their home.
Question- Why are the cases increasing in Delhi and some states when the cases started decreasing?
answer– Those who are growing on the case are only growing in Delhi. Leaving some states of the country, cases are increasing a bit, but broadly, cases are increasing in cases where there were more cases across the country. Cases are increasing in Delhi are increasing well. This has never happened in 8-10 months. We are expressing the concern of Delhi from the beginning. Are repeatedly warning people. Efforts are also being made to provide support and caution is being given to do everything. The Government of India is giving full help to the Delhi Government and earlier too. Still doing what is necessary in the context of Delhi.
Question- The number of people to attend weddings in Delhi has been limited to 50 and there is a challan of 2000. How do you see this is correct?
answer– All these things are also necessary to keep people in the discipline. I am repeatedly appealing that the Prime Minister has given a message to the nation. Amitabh Bachchan is appealing to the country on caller tune all the time on our phone. They are not doing this work since today. Even the small child of the village knows that to fight the corona virus, we have to wear masks and wash our hands. If people are breaking the rules, then only hard work will have to be done.
Question- Delhi government is prohibiting public places on Chhath Puja, what do you believe on this?
answer– It is also important to respect everything that is religious sentiment, which is a religious tendency. He gives us great pleasure and satisfaction. Whatever people, wherever they can adopt Kovid-19 appropriate behavior, then there is no problem in anything. To adopt that, the government and all systems cooperate. Plan such arrangements, monitor such arrangements. I think it is more practical.
Question- It is being said that he will go to the regulator in the UK for the vaccine of Oxford, so can this vaccine be allowed in India too soon?
answer– This is called emergency authorization. When such a situation comes, surely the expert who is there will decide on it. All we will say is that whatever decision the Government of India or its experts will take under the leadership of Prime Minister Modi, which is our primary focus, it is the interest of the people, the safety of the people will be the interest of the people.
