New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi had announced in his address to the nation on Monday that the central government would get the responsibility of corona vaccination of all persons above 18 years. After the announcement of the Prime Minister, from June 21, the new vaccination policy will be implemented in the country. The central government aims to vaccinate the entire population of the country by the end of this year. But it is not possible to reach the target at the speed at which vaccination is being done in the country.
If according to the target, if all adults have to be vaccinated by the end of the year, then the national daily average of vaccination from January 16 to June 7 will have to be increased five times. If you are finding this difficult to hear, then understand that the country’s largest state, Uttar Pradesh, will have to increase the vaccination average by nine times. While Bihar will have to increase its daily vaccination average by eight times, Tamil Nadu, Jharkhand and Assam by seven times.
Uttar Pradesh and Bihar far behind vaccination target
According to the report of English newspaper Times of India, there are still 207 days left in this year from Tuesday. Talking about the further data according to the 143 days of vaccination so far, the findings are worrying. Uttar Pradesh has given the first dose of vaccine to 12% of the adult population in five months of vaccination. At the same time, only 1.4% have received both doses of the vaccine in Uttar Pradesh. Talking about the daily average of vaccine in UP, about 1.4 lakh people have got the vaccine daily in the state. But if everyone in Uttar Pradesh is to be vaccinated by the end of the year, then this daily average will have to be increased to 13.2 lakh doses daily.
The situation is better in Himachal and Kerala but even here Need to increase
On the other hand, if we talk about the hill state of Himachal Pradesh, then 38.1% have been given the first dose and 7.9% of the population has been given the second dose. Himachal Pradesh will also have to increase its daily vaccination average from 18 thousand to 41 thousand per day. Kerala has given the first dose to 31 percent of the population and the second dose to 8.1 percent. Kerala will also have to increase its daily vaccination rate by two and a half times.
The condition of other states of the country
Five out of the six most populous states of the country have increased the daily average of vaccination by five times or more to achieve the target by the end of the year To be increased These include Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, West Bengal, Tamil Nadu and Madhya Pradesh. At the same time, Maharashtra, the second largest state by population, will have to increase its vaccination rate by 4.5 times. Talking about the other ten states by population, Rajasthan, Karnataka, Gujarat, and Andhra Pradesh need to increase vaccination by three to four times. This task is difficult for these states, but Uttar Pradesh and Bihar have a bigger challenge.
