Controversy of 'comparing vaccines' laid to rest: AIIMS Director on PM taking COVID shot

After Prime Minister Narendra Modi was administered Bharat Biotech's COVAXIN, AIIMS Director Dr Randeep Guleria said that the controversy comparing one vaccine to other has also been laid to rest.

He said that the PM took "made in India" vaccine and showcased that both vaccines are safe and efficacious.

"PM took COVID-19 vaccine and showed that we must do the same when turn comes.

It will go a long way in getting over the issue of hesitancy.

All over 60 years of age and those above 45 years with co-morbidities must take vaccine.

It is the only way to come out of the pandemic," Guleria told ANI.

Don't panic in home isolation, by rushing to hospital, you're creating more chaos: AIIMS Director

Amid increasing demand of Remdesivir injections across the country, Delhi AIIMS Director Dr Randeep Guleria on April 21 advised countrymen don't consider Remdesivir as a magic bullet as it requires for only small percentage of COVID patients. "It is important to understand that most of us who are either in home isolation or in the hospital, because panic, don't actually need any specific treatment. Only small percentage requires Remdesivir. Don't consider this as a magic bullet," said Dr Guleria while addressing issues related to COVID-19 in the country. "By rushing to the hospital, you are creating more chaos and not helping yourself and you are actually denying a bed to fellow citizen who may need it but may not get it because of unnecessary hospitalisation of people who don't need to be in hospital," Dr Guleria further added.
