COVID-19 | Test, trace, vaccinate should be the mantra
Updated: May 3, 2021
When COVID-19 vaccines become available in India, with correct scientific information, along with clear and coherent policies for the vaccine, high level of acceptance of the vaccines can be easily expected in India
As COVID-19 spread havoc across the world, it seemed that the pandemic would cause insurmountable damage to India’s health infrastructure, and economy. However, India has done reasonably well, with the tools of testing and tracing playing a critical role in this response.
With no confirmed therapeutics, it was clear quite early in the pandemic that efficacious vaccines against COVID-19 will play a major role in controlling the virus. It is remarkable, and unprecedented that within a year vaccines against COVID-19 have not only been developed scientifically, but are actually being rolled out for immunisation.
