PM Modi chairs meeting on vaccination

Meanwhile, ahead of his 4pm address to the nation, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has chaired a high-level meeting to review the planning and preparations for vaccination against Covid-19. The meeting looked into strategies that could be employed as and when a vaccine for the novel coronavirus becomes available.

"Prime Minister noted that vaccination of India's vast and diverse population will need to factor in issues including those related to management of medical supply chains, prioritization of at-risk populations, coordination between different agencies involved in the process, as well as the role of private sector and civil society in this national endeavour," a government statement said.
