Prime Minister Modi To Interact With Chief Ministers On Monday Over Covid-19 Situation, Vaccine Rollout

Bookmark

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will interact with chief ministers of all states on Jan. 11 to discuss the Covid-19 situation and the vaccination rollout in the country, his office said on Friday.

This will be Modi's first interaction with chief ministers following the recent approval of two coronavirus vaccines for restricted emergency use by India's drug regulator.

The prime minister has often spoken with state chief ministers following the pandemic's outbreak in the country.

India is preparing for the rollout of Covid-19 vaccines and the second nationwide mock drill on the drive was conducted on Friday.

India's drugs regulator has approved Oxford vaccine Covishield, being manufactured by the Serum Institute, and indigenously developed Covaxin of Bharat Biotech for restricted emergency use in the country.
