Private hospitals in vaccination drive must: Premji tells Sitharaman

Feb 22, 2021 00:22 IST

Wipro czar Azim Premji on Sunday urged the Central government to involve private hospitals to speed up the anti-Covid vaccination drive across the country. Participating in a post-budget interaction with industry leaders, organised by the Bangalore Chamber of Industry and Commerce, Premji told Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman if the government involves private hospitals and nursing homes to join the anti-Covid vaccination drive, about 500 million people can be inoculated in 2 months. The tycoon said scaling up the vaccination drive to cover more people at the earliest was critical though the government was doing its best.
