Meanwhile, Union Health and Family Welfare Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan said soon it would be a reality to vaccinate the entire population in the country against COVID-19 after prioritising risk groups.

He said India has done extremely well in developing vaccines in the shortest possible time, and presently two vaccines have been given emergency use authorisation.
