The vaccine made to prevent the corona epidemic has proved to be a lifesaver for India as well as other countries. While this vaccine has saved the lives of more than 42 lakh people in India, it has prevented more than 20 million people from going to death all over the world. This has been revealed in the data of the Lancet study journal from December 2020 to December 2021. Researchers said that 31.14 million deaths were estimated from corona in the world, but because of vaccination, the lives of 1.98 crore were saved.
… would have been saved and the lives of 5.99 lakh people
The study estimates that another 5,99,300 lives could have been saved if the World Health Organization’s target of vaccinating 40 percent of the population in each country with two or more doses by the end of 2021 was met.
India was in danger but vaccination was postponed: Oliver Watson
Study lead author Oliver Watson said that for India, we estimate that more than 4.2 million deaths were prevented by vaccination during this period. This modeling study shows that vaccination campaigns in India have saved millions of lives. This reflects the remarkable impact of vaccination, especially in India, which was the first country to experience the effects of the delta variant.
