New Delhi, June 7: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday said that over 23 crore COVID-19 vaccine doses have been given in the country and the supply of vaccines will increase in the coming days. Addressing the nation, PM Modi said the country has two made-in-India vaccines.
“Today more than 23 crore vaccine doses have been administered in the country… The vaccine supply will be increasing in the coming days. Seven companies in the country are producing different vaccines and three vaccine trials are at an advanced stage,” he said.
Noting that vaccines are protection for people against the virus, he said vaccine-producing countries are less compared to the demand for vaccines. “Today, if we didn’t have India-made vaccines, then what would have happened in such a big country like India?” he asked. Noting that India is fighting the second wave of the pandemic, he expressed sympathies with the families who have lost their loved ones to the virus.

To fight COVID in the last one-and-a-year, new healthcare infrastructure has been created in the country,” he said.
