The second wave of Corona is wreaking havoc in the country. The daily figure of the infected has crossed four lakhs. At the same time, the government has started the third phase of vaccination, intensifying the fight against Corona, in which it has been decided to apply the Covid vaccine to people between the age of 18 and 45 years. However, many state governments are complaining about the shortage of the Covid vaccine. Meanwhile, the first consignment of Covid vaccine Sputnik-V has arrived in India from Russia.
It is believed that the arrival of Sputnik-V vaccine in India will go a long way in the war against Corona. Recently, the Center has approved its emergency use. Thus the fight against Corona in the country is being fought with the help of Sputnik-V along with three vaccines Covishield and Covacsin. Let us know that recently Prime Minister Modi had a telephone conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin on the issue of Corona crisis deepening in the country. In this conversation, Russian President Putin assured PM Modi of all possible help.
According to the statement issued by the PMO, Putin expressed happiness over the permission to use Sputnik in India. The news agency ANI quoted India’s Ambassador to Russia Bala Venkatesh Varma as saying that India expected to have 150,000 to 200,000 ready vaccines available in early May. According to diplomatic sources, India will continue to supply the Covid vaccine Sputnik-V vaccine in further installments. This will obviously prove to be a major weapon in the ongoing fight against Corona.
The report said that Sputnik vaccine is expected to reach five million vials in India by next month. This help has come at a time when in India, the highest number of new cases of corona infection in 24 hours has been reported so far in a day. With this, the number of cases under treatment has now crossed 32 lakh. The total number of infected people increased to 1,91,64,969 after 4,01,993 new cases a day in the country, while the number of dead increased to 2,11,853 after 3,523 deaths.
