    In some good news, Government of India has signed a purchase order of 11 million doses with Serum Institute of India for its Covid-19 vaccine ‘Covishield’ being manufactured in conjunction with AstraZeneca.

    The move came on a day when Prime Minister Narendra Modi interacted with Chief Ministers of all states for a smooth vaccine rollout and said that the Centre will bear the cost of vaccinations of three crore healthcare professionals and frontline workers and those above the age of 50 years with comorbidities will get the vaccine next.

    With this, PM Modi held out another pertinent message loud and clear: don’t spread rumours about efficacy of Made In India vaccines and stop the VIP culture of jumping queues for early vaccination.

    Let’s keep fake news infodemic at bay, adhere to government guidelines and stop paying heed to unsubstantiated news.
