Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates has praised India for having installed 100 crore vaccine doses in the country. Gates has also praised the efforts in India in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic in the past. On Friday, he tweeted on applying 100 crore vaccine doses and said that this achievement shows India’s willingness to show its ability to manufacture on a large scale. India achieved this milestone in the matter of vaccination on Thursday morning. This has been achieved in less than 10 months.
Bill Gates tweeted, ‘India has injected one billion vaccine doses, which shows its innovation, ability to mass-manufacture and the willingness of millions of health workers to support Kovin.’ Gates also tagged Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya, Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) and the Union Health Ministry in his post. Bill Gates had also congratulated India for vaccination on August 28, when more than one crore Indians were vaccinated against this dangerous disease.

Appreciated PM Modi’s leadership
This was the first time when more than one crore citizens were vaccinated in a day. But since then this feat has been achieved in at least four other days. Earlier, Gates had also praised PM Modi for his leadership during the pandemic. Nearly nine months after the nationwide vaccination campaign began on January 19, India on Thursday achieved the milestone of delivering more than 1 billion vaccine doses. This figure includes people taking single and double doses of the vaccine. The government’s goal is to fully vaccinate the population above the age of 18 by the end of the year.
28 crore population fully vaccinated
In the matter of vaccination, only China is ahead of India where more than 200 crore doses have been given. At the same time, India comes second with 100 crore doses, which is 58 crore more than America. While the vaccination graph of countries like America, Brazil and Indonesia remains flat, India is increasing rapidly. Talking about full vaccination, India is second only to China after fully vaccinating its population of more than 28 crores. This number is at least 100 million more than the US and is equal to the sum of the fully immunized populations of Japan, Germany, Russia, France and the UK.
