High demand of Indian vaccines, lower than expected no. of Indian people getting vaccinated

The Delhi High Court on Thursday said that Corona vaccines are being donated to other countries, vaccines are being imported abroad, but vaccines are being given to Indians people at lower capacity. The court directed the central government to submit an affidavit by March, to argue the rationale for the classification of vaccinations. Also, the vaccine companies Serum Institute and Bharat Biotech have been asked to explain their manufacturing capacity. The court hearing is due for
the matter on 10 March.

A bench of Justices Vipin Sandhi and Justice Rekha Pali said during the hearing on the PIL of the Bar Council, "Serum Institute and Bharat Biotech can make more vaccines, but it does not seem to be happening." In fact, in the second phase, the government has approved to give free vaccine to all the elderly above 60 years and those suffering from certain diseases above 45 years of age.

The bench said, Corona cases in the country have started to increase again, so what is the reason for controlling vaccination. It is important to have a sense of responsibility and immediate need. On this, the Additional Solicitor General Chetan Sharma and Advocate Anil Soni told the court that this is a policy decision after consultation with experts. The petition has demanded that all people associated with the justice system, including judges, be declared front-line employees, so that they get priority in getting vaccinated.

India has a huge population and a large part of total population is still to be vaccinated, therefore vaccinating Indians should be prioritized. Due to negligence of the rules of social distancing and other precautions by the people has caused a resurge in the number of corona cases.

On Thursday, for the first time in the last 34 days, the maximum number of new corona cases has been found in a single day. 34 days later 17 thousand new patients were reported. Of these, 860 patients are in only six states.

On Wednesday, 89 patients died of corona. 14,031 patients were also discharged. Earlier - on January 28, 18 thousand patients were found in one day. Since then, their number was continuously reduced.
