Meanwhile, Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan on Saturday said the number of vaccine doses administered in India will reach 51.6 crore by the end of July. India has so far administered over 18 crore jabs to eligible beneficiaries. Vardhan, during his discussion with the health ministers of Uttar Pradesh, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh and Andhra Pradesh, said vaccine production was being ramped up to cater to the increased demand.

"Production of vaccines is being steadily ramped up to cater to increased demand while vaccines that are being produced now continue to be equitably apportioned and swiftly sent to States/Union Territories.

Also, Former RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan on Saturday said the COVID-19 pandemic is probably India's greatest challenge since independence and added that in many places the government was not present to help the people for various reasons.

Addressing a virtual event organised by the University of Chicago Center in Delhi, Rajan said India needs a quick bankruptcy process for the MSME sector.

"This is a tragic time in India given the pandemic. COVID-19 pandemic is probably India's greatest challenge since independence," he said.

"When the pandemic hit first, the challenge was largely economic as a result of lockdowns, now the challenge is both economic and personal, and there will also be a social element to it as we go forward," he added.
