Covid-19: World Health Organization congratulates India as country registers 75-crore vaccine doses.

India's cumulative vaccination coverage against the coronavirus disease (Covid-19) crossed the 75 crore mark on Monday, an official statement from the Union ministry of health and family welfare read.

Dr Poonam Khetrapal Singh, WHO regional director for South-East Asia, congratulated India on achieving the accomplishment at a "unprecedented pace."

In a tweet from WHO South-East Asia, she was quoted as saying, "While it took 85 days to deliver the first 100 million (10 crore) doses, India reached 750 million (75 crore) doses from 650 million (65 crore) in just 13 days."

Mansukh Mandaviya, the Union Health Minister, also used Twitter to applaud India. He went on to say that under Prime Minister Narendra Modi's "Sabka Saath, Sabka Prayas" credo, the "world's largest immunisation effort is continually developing new dimensions."

The health minister's message further stated that the feat of inoculating 75 crore Covid-19 vaccinations was accomplished at a time when the country is commemorating the 75th anniversary of India's independence with the "Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav."

A brief congratulations video was also broadcast on the health ministry's Twitter account to honour the achievement of the 75 crore vaccination administrations.

On August 27, India gave a record 1 crore coronavirus vaccines to eligible beneficiaries in a single day, a first since the statewide vaccination push began in January.

“Crossing the one-crore mark is a significant achievement. “Congratulations to those who have been vaccinated and to those who have made the vaccination effort a success,” PM Modi said at the time.

India had reached the milestone of inoculating Covid-19 vaccine jabs to more than 1 crore beneficiaries thrice in the preceding 11 days by September 6, according to data by the Union health ministry.

“Every day, India sets a new record by administering 1.25 crore immunizations. India has given out more immunizations in a single day than other countries' whole populations,” Prime Minister Modi stated following the triple milestone.

Meanwhile, according to data supplied by the Union health ministry, India registered 27,254 new coronavirus cases on Monday, bringing the total number of cases in the country to 3,32,64,175.

There were 37,687 new cases recovered, bringing the total number of recovered cases to 3,24,47,032. A total of 219 fatalities have been reported, bringing the total death toll to 4,42,874. The number of current cases in India is 3,74,269, accounting for 1.13 percent of all cases.
