India saved over 3.4M lives under Covid-19 vaccine campaign

New Delhi, Feb 25 (Prensa Latina) India was able to save over 3.4 million lives by undertaking a nationwide Covid-19 vaccination campaign at an unprecedented scale, a Stanford University report released by Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya showed.

The working paper report titled ‘Healing the Economy: Estimating the Economic Impact on India’s vaccination and related issues’ said that the Covid vaccination campaign also yielded a positive economic impact by preventing a loss of $18.3 billion.

The report also praised how the country prevented coronavirus from spreading nationwide, saving at least two million deaths.

Taking strong measures on the ground such as contact tracing, mass testing, home quarantine, distribution of medical equipment, renovation of health infrastructure and constant coordination were critical in containing the virus.

According to the report, India´s three cornerstones – containment, relief package and vaccine delivery – were pivotal in saving lives and ensuring the country’s economy.

Mandaviya said India adopted a “whole-of-government” and “whole-of-society” approach in a proactive, preventive and graduated manner.

On Saturday, the country reported 180 new cases of Covid-19, while current infecion toll jumped to 2,090, according to Health and Family Welfare Ministry.

To date, India reached 530,764 deaths, and overall infection toll climbed to 44,685,799.
