He described vaccines as absolutely important to save lives and defeat coronavirus.
“We have the vaccine which is important to save lives and defeat the pandemic. India is proud of our scientists who have worked on the COVID19 vaccines,” PM said.
PM Modi once again thanked the medics across the country who have been working 24X7 to ensure treatment to the COVID patients.
“I once again salute our frontline healthcare workers, doctors, nurses who selflessly risk their lives every day to serve others in need, to those who have suffered and lost their dear ones. I extend condolences,” PM said on the occasion of Virtual Vesak Global Celebrations on Buddha Purnima.
Our planet will not be the same after COVID-19, we will remember events in future as either pre or post Covid, PM said.
