Now we are going to tell you about India’s digital revolution on vaccination and the paper revolution in America and Britain. In the US and UK, people who get vaccinated are given a paper certificate instead of a digital certificate, on which the vaccination information is handwritten. While in India, the world’s largest digital vaccination goes through Cowin. And in our country, people get a digital vaccination certificate within minutes.
This is the situation where India vaccinates its citizens the fastest compared to the whole world. India has vaccinated over 7 million people in the past 6 days, while Britain’s total population is only 60 million.
India does not just quickly vaccinate its citizens, but people also get digital certificate of vaccination in India. As soon as you receive the vaccine, within minutes, a digital vaccination certificate arrives on your mobile phone, which you can also download.
While in Britain still today, after receiving the vaccine, a vaccination certificate is issued on a simple card. The British people get the digital vaccination certificate after 2 weeks after receiving the vaccine, also after requesting it.
It’s the same with developed countries like America. Here too, vaccination information is given in writing on a simple card. And in America, there is no provision for the digital certificate.
Not only that, you can see real-time immunization data in India on the Indian government website cowin.gov.in.
Cowin is a licensed product from the Government of India. 76 countries around the world now want to use this technology so that they too can digitize the vaccination record.
Just yesterday, Prime Minister Modi said at the Global Covid Summit that countries around the world should think about facilitating international travel. The irony is that countries like Britain consider their paper certificates to be correct but do not want to recognize the power of Indian technology. Let’s look at another example of Britain’s dual attitude.
Britain has now recognized even small countries in terms of population like Barbados, Bahrain, Brunei, Canada, Dominica and Malaysia, but doubts the vaccination program of a huge country like India.
There are only 7 states in America where there are mobile apps for Covid-19 recordings and vaccination. 22 US states have banned such apps, but Britain recognizes vaccination certificate for people coming from America but asks Indian people to remain in quarantine.
However, today the Supreme Court of India praised India’s vaccination program and declared that despite the adverse circumstances and such a large population, vaccinating people at this speed is worthy of praise.
There is also a truth that Britain is responsible for many infectious diseases in India, because when India was ruled by Britain, many infectious diseases spread to India. It is not that the epidemics did not spread to India before the British arrived, but after the British arrived, they increased a lot.
In 1918, the Spanish flu also spread to India because of the British as the British had sent many Indian soldiers to fight World War I. When these soldiers started coming back to India from different countries, with them the Spanish flu also came to India and killed one to two million people in India at the time. So, today Britain should not only learn from its historical mistakes, but respect India’s vaccine revolution and recognize India’s immunization program.
