- Request states to assure migrant workers to remain where they are, assure them that they will be vaccinated where they are and they won’t lose jobs.

- The demand for oxygen has increased in many parts of the country. The centre, the state government, private sector are trying to make oxygen available to all those who are in need of it. Many steps are being taken in this direction.
- India with two ‘made in India’ vaccines started the world’s largest vaccination program. Till now, more than 12 crore vaccine doses have been administered.
- Second wave has hit like a storm; I feel the pain of healthcare workers…in any situation, we should never lose patience.
- The decisions taken in the last few days will improve the coronavirus situation.
