a time that i don't want anyone else to peace but it's i'm sure it's also learning for all of us were working at the frontline you say. experience what's the government learning out of this because its strategy hasn't worked until now is a changing its strategy. yeah i think see as i mentioned all of us are learning here and it's been unprecedented for all of us in fact the government it's made by us as well and i think they're also in a in a tough situation they have tried certain things which hurt me hasn't worked at well but then there has been a recent change in a strategy mainly a 3 pronged strategy one containing the infection of some measures of lockdown in fact i'm speaking to your from bangalore from cannot occur where we have peace in a lockdown to report menace of states and going locked on to corrupt infection or trying to alarm and force corporate appropriate behavior of social distancing and
8:35 pm
respiratory hygiene at the same time are building up on the health care infrastructure to hold on to the reason demand and most importantly now that we have started a vaccination drive the corbett $1000.00 backs in communication strategy is in place and we are trying to make maximum availability and coverage of the vaccine i think the government is trying for that. just explain to me what what sort of a prime minister needs to be urged from a coalition of opposition parties to act to save his own country that's the news i was reading today. yeah i heard the news too i think what i can tell you ben is from my own personal perspective as a frontline health worker and i think there are different our public health agencies national health agencies are also proposed to the government to the prime minister you know has different different strategies that work best specially in terms of the corporate 1000 back submission and ensuring that there is health equip
8:36 pm
t. and equality in health care access and specially looking to the sea 50 of the frontline health workers because there will be the main backbone and force for this ongoing battle health. fascination campaign. yes so as of 11 made the data that you know i was going through. for 9.9 percent of indians i receive at least $1.00 of vaccination and a 2.7 per cent if i'm not wrong have been fully vaccinated that have their $52.00 of of either call that scene or call the sheaves and you know i think in terms of person theaters it's looks better but then what you have to understand is that in a country like india which is very populous and has a lot of social cultural ethnic diversity it's getting vaccine you're ensuring
8:37 pm
facts in distribution and countering vaccine hesitancy the the major challenges that undergoing not specially backs and i will ability i thought centers well are rich and poor getting the vaccine are hindus and muslims getting access to the treatment they need. or i think the infection doesn't differentiate based on race culture or ethnicity social economic status or region so we are treating everyone equal but of course you know certain areas certain pockets specially you know the homeless the migrants the social economical e are under privileged they're facing innumerable challenges in general relation to the corporate and that includes vaccination b.b.s.'s well especially you know the misinformation has been huge and immense and there are a number of banks who bets campaigns going on and there's a lot of hearsay and probably the effect certain classes more than others who are in rule of us are not that well informed or in touch with the media how much more
8:38 pm
