Our vaccination programme has added great strength to the fight against COVID-19. It has led to saving lives and thus protecting livelihoods.

At the same time, the role of our doctors, nurses and healthcare workers is exceptional. When we see glimpses of people being vaccinated in remote areas, or our healthcare workers taking the vaccines there, our hearts and minds are filled with pride.

Let us keep following all COVID-19 related protocols and overcome the pandemic."
