New Delhi: People from all over the world are facing Corona at this time. The outbreak of this epidemic continues to increase in India too. So far, more than 60 lakh people have died of corona infection in the country while more than 95 thousand people have died. Scientists of the country are engaged in making the vaccine of Covid-19. On Monday (September 28), Health Minister Harsh Vardhan has given information about the corona vaccine. He said that we hope that within the first quarter of 2021, the Coronavirus Vaccine will be available in the country. Meanwhile, he inaugurated the Covid-19 vaccine portal.
Now everyone can see all the information related to the Coronavirus vaccine in India on one portal. For the first time in India, the country’s top medical research body Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) has launched a vaccine portal.
The Health Minister said, ‘Research is being done rapidly on the vaccine. At least three vaccines in the country are in different stages of testing. We expect the vaccine to be available within the first quarter of 2021. The Health Minister informed that an online portal about COVID-19 vaccine has also been launched. Everyone can go online on that portal and see all the contemporary research and development related information about vaccination.’
According to the latest data released by the Ministry of Health on Monday, 82 thousand 170 new cases of the corona were reported in the country in the last 24 hours and 1,039 people have become victims of this deadly virus.
During the launch of the COVID Vaccine Portal, the Health Minister said, ICMR’s second sero-survey indicates that India’s population is far from acquiring Herd Immunity capability against Coronavirus infection, thus dealing with infection Guidelines need to be followed.
Dr Harsh Vardhan said, ‘The sense of satisfaction should not be generated by the report of the Sero-survey. The first sero-survey in May 2020 shows that the nationwide prevalence of coronavirus infection was only 0.73%. Even the second sero-survey to be released soon indicates that we are far from achieving any kind of herd immunity. In such a situation, it is necessary that all of us should continue to follow the proper practice as per the COVID Guidelines.
