Covid-19 cases dip, PM Modi calls for ‘speedy delivery’ of vaccines

As coronavirus infections continue to dip for the third consecutive week, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday called for a speedy delivery of Covid-19 vaccine once they are developed.

Charing a high-level meet, the PM called for using the election infrastructure of the country for the speedy delivery of the vaccines.

His remarks come on day the country’s drug controller allowed clinical trials of Russia’s Sputnik V vaccine candidate and the Serum Institute of India, which is to manufacture the Oxford vaccine candidate, said that India may get a Covid-19 vaccine by March next year.
