Their efforts are recognised.The whole world was struggling with the virus Corona. No proper treatment method was there or no vaccine to stop the spread. Across the world, all the people were looking at the scientists and pharma companies to come out with a vaccine for this.
India's Bharat Biotech and Serum Institute has taken up the challenge and developed Covaxin and Covishield which are among the first generation vaccines to COVID 19. These two companies did well and supplied enough quantity of the vaccine to our country as well as other countries.
In the third wave even though the cases are many the severity is less. The situation is mainly due to the vaccination of the majority of the people.
The Indian government duly recognised the efforts of Cyrus Poonawalla of the Serum Institue and Krishna Ella and Suchitra Ella of Bharat Biotech in bringing out these vaccines and honoured them with the Padma Bhushan awards. They truly deserve the awards and we should congratulate them. We should appreciate the Indian government for recognising their efforts and honouring them with Padma awards.
I hope all the members will join me in congratulating the award winners.
