The PM said that the number of new cases of COVID-19 infection in the country is now decreasing as the country prepares for ‘the world’s largest vaccination program in the next year.

“Earlier, I said, ‘Dawai nahi toh dheelai nahi’. Now, I am saying ‘Dawai bhi aur kadaai (caution) bhi’. Our mantra for the year 2021 is ‘Dawai bhi aur kadaai bhi’,” PM said.

“In our country, rumours spread quickly. Different people for their personal gains or due to irresponsible behaviour spread various rumours. Maybe rumours will be spread when vaccination begins, some have already begun,” Prime Minister Narendra Modi said. He appealed to the people of the country to be careful about rumours and as responsible citizens refrain from forwarding messages on social media without checking.

A total area of ​​201 acres of land has been allocated for the project and will be built at an estimated cost of Rs 1,195 crore. The project is expected to be completed by mid-2022.

At a time when the country is struggling with a coronavirus pandemic and with the increasing needs of a growing population day by day, it is necessary to have the better medical infrastructure to rise above such challenges in future.

Governor of Gujarat Acharya Devvrat, Chief Minister of Gujarat Vijay Rupani, Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan and Union MoS for Health Ashwini Kumar Choubey were also present on the occasion.
