Knowledge is power.
The government might have taken the opinions of manufacturing companies and other scientists who are involved in the task. They should calculate the total manufacturing capacity and whether any import is required is also to be worked out. All the think tank might have done the exercise correctly and they might have drawn the plan. In such a case we need not worry about the capability. Without getting into all these details if a plan is made also no problem but they should create the infrastructure required for the manufacturing, distribution and administration of the same. I wish and hope that the government will be successful in implementing its plan and come out successfully.
Vaccination is said to be necessary to eliminate this virus from the country. We need to work as a team.
At a time when we are able to administer just about 16 to 17 lakh doses per day and the projected requirement, for administering the vaccine to the entire population by the end of this year, is about 75 lakh (appx) doses per day, combined with the acute shortage of vaccines, the target set by the government is almost like a mirage. The government is moving ahead on expected calculations (or is it miscalculations?) while the actual fact on the ground indicates a sorry state of affairs. We are still short of vaccines and procuring vaccines and ensuring its administration to the entire population is not an easy task and is, as per reports, not achievable as stipulated.
Having faulted and faltered in the beginning or at the right time, the promises being made by the centre should, at its best, be disregarded as mere rhetoric. Let us do our best by wearing masks, washing and sanitising our hands, maintaining social distancing, moving out only during emergencies and last not but not least, praying to the Almighty to keep us safe!
