Society and people should lead in creating ‘micro containment zones’: PM
We have to move towards zero vaccine wastage: PM
Make targets at personal, social and administration level for ‘Tika Utsav’ and make effort to achieve them: PM

My dear countrymen,

Today, we are launching 'Tika Utsav' from 11th April, which is the birth anniversary of Jyotiba Phule. The 'Tika Utsav' will continue till 14th April, i.e., the birth anniversary of Baba Saheb Ambedkar.

This festival is, in a way, the beginning of another major war against Corona. We have to lay special emphasis on personal hygiene as well as social hygiene.

We must remember these four things.

Each One- Vaccinate One, that is, help those who are less educated and elderly, who cannot go and get vaccinated themselves.

Each One- Treat One, that is, help people who do not have the means or do not know about the facilities available for vaccination.

Each One- Save One, i.e., Emphasis should be that I should wear a mask and in this way I save myself and save the lives of others also.

And the fourth important thing is that in the event of someone contracting corona, the people of the society should lead in the creation of ‘micro-containment zones’. Family members and people of the society should create a ‘micro-containment zone’ wherever a Corona positive case has been reported.

In a country with a dense population like India, ‘micro-containment zone’ is also an important way to fight corona.

In the event of detection of a single positive case, it is very important for all of us to be alert and to test the rest of the people.

At the same time, the society and the administration have to make every effort to get the vaccine administered to the eligible people.

We have to ensure that not a single vaccine is lost. We have to move towards zero vaccine waste.

In the meantime, we have to move towards optimum utilization of the country's vaccination capacity. This is also a way to increase our capacity.

Our success will be determined by our awareness of the ‘micro containment zone’.

Our success will be determined not to leave the house when there is no need.

Our success will be decided that those who are eligible for vaccination are vaccinated.

Our success will also depend on whether we wear masks and follow other rules.

Friends,

In these four days, we have to make every effort to achieve our goals at the individual level, at the society level and at the administration level.

I am confident that we will once again be able to control corona with people's participation and discharging our responsibility, while remaining alert.

Remember-- Medicine as well as strict adherence to protocols.

Thank you!

Yours,

Narendra Modi.

The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi launched ‘Customized Crash Course programme for Covid 19 Frontline workers’ today via video conferencing. The training programme would be conducted in 111 training centres spread over 26 states. About one lakh frontline workers will be trained in this initiative. The Union Minister of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship Dr Mahendra Nath Pandey, and many other Union Ministers, Ministers from States, experts and other stakeholders were also present on the occasion.

Addressing the event, the Prime Minister said that this launch is an important next step in the fight against Corona. The Prime Minister cautioned that the virus is present and possibility of mutation is also there. The second wave of the pandemic illustrated the kind of challenges that the virus may present to us. The Country needs to stay prepared to meet the challenges and training more than one lakh frontline warriors is a step in that direction, said the Prime Minister.

The Prime Minister reminded us that the pandemic has tested the strength of every country, institution, society, family and person of the world. At the same time, this alerted us to expand our capabilities as science, government, society, institution or individuals. India took up this challenge and status of PPE kits, testing and other medical infrastructure related to covid care and treatment bears testimony to the efforts. Shri Modi pointed out that far-flung hospitals are being provided with ventilators and oxygen concentrators. More than 1500 oxygen plants are being established at war footing. Amidst all these efforts, skilled manpower is critical. For this and to support the current force of corona warriors one lakh youth is being trained. This training should be over in two-three months, said the Prime Minister.

The Prime Minister informed that the top experts of the country have designed these six courses, launched today, as per demands of the states and union territories . The training will be imparted to Covid warriors in six customised job roles namely Home Care Support, Basic Care Support, Advanced Care Support, Emergency Care Support, Sample Collection Support, and Medical Equipment Support. This will include fresh skilling as well as upskilling of those who have some training in this type of work. This campaign will give fresh energy to the health sector frontline force and will also provide job opportunities to our youth.

The Prime Minister said that the Corona period has proved how important the mantra of skill, re-skill and up-skill. The Prime Minister said the Skill India Mission was started separately for the first time in the country, a Skill Development Ministry was created and the Prime Minister's Skill Development Centers were opened across the country. Today Skill India Mission is helping millions of this country’s youth every year in providing training according to the needs of the day. Since last year the Ministry of Skill Development has trained lakhs of health workers across the country, even amidst the pandemic.

The Prime Minister said given the size of our population, it is necessary to keep increasing the number of doctors, nurses and paramedics in the health sector. Work has been done with a focused approach over the last 7 years to start new AIIMS, new medical colleges and new nursing colleges. Similarly, reforms are being encouraged in medical education and related institutions. The seriousness and the pace at which the work on preparing the health professionals is going on now is unprecedented.

The Prime Minister said that health professionals like ASHA workers, ANM, Anganwadi and health workers deployed in the dispensaries in the villages are one of the strong pillars of our health sector and are often left out of the discussion. They are playing an important role in preventing infection to support the world's largest vaccination campaign. The Prime Minister lauded these health workers for their work during all the adversities for the safety of each and every countryman. He said their role is huge in preventing the spread of infection in villages in remote areas and in hilly and tribal areas.

The Prime Minister said many guidelines have been issued related to the campaign which is to start from 21st June. People below 45 years of age will get the same treatment for vaccination as for people above 45 years of age from June 21st. The Union Government is committed to give free vaccines to every citizen while following corona protocol.

The Prime Minister wished the trainees and said he believed that their new skills will be used in saving the lives of the countrymen.
