The world is in the midst of an unprecedented pandemic. As Centre & State Government, and various organizations work together on the response, they’re tracking the pandemic, advising on critical interventions, and distributing vital medical supplies to develop and deploy a safe environment for people. According to the Indian government, India has now become the fastest country to administer over 17 crore Covid-19 vaccine doses in only 114 days. In contrast, China took 119 days to do so and the United States took 115 days to achieve the landmark.
Leading corporate brands have also begun to tap private healthcare providers to conduct on-site and off-campus Covid vaccination drives for their entire workforce, with costs to be borne by them. The move comes with a week left before inoculation coverage of all adults against Covid begins across the country. Currently, India has 464 million youth population and it’s expected that it’ll take 3 years to complete the vaccination drive.
However, corporate firms are extending a hand to the government to shorten this timeline. Here are a few companies that are leaving no stone unturned on this front-
