Setting a global record! India tested more than 20L samples for #COVID19  in last 24 hrs, the highest number of tests conducted in a single day across the world! All credit to our resilient frontline workers, lab technicians & medical professionals @PMOIndia  #Unite2FightCorona

Shared idealism is the need of the hour ! Politics around the world’s #LargestVaccineDrive  needs to end, for the sake of our citizens. Here’s clarifying all aspects of upcoming phase 3 of our #Covid19Vaccination  drive, putting all speculations to rest.

Air, Rail, Road & Sea; Heaven & earth are being moved to overcome challenges thrown up by this wave of #COVID19  Salute#CovidWarriors  expediting supply of oxygen tankers, concentrators, equipment & meds across borders @PMOIndia  @MoHFW_INDIA  @moca_goi  @RailMinIndia  @shipmin_india 

Trust, transparency & accountability! Read this thread by my colleague Sh @HardeepSPuri  Ji as he clears the air around the Central Vista project with hard facts and lays bare the hypocrisy of Congress party. @PMOIndia 

As Chairman of @WHO  Executive Board, it's been a privilege to be a part of several key discussions & decisions to support #WHO 's #pandemic  response, organisational reforms & efforts towards a healthier tomorrow! Share some key highlights at 74th World Health Assembly today...

Hotels offering #COVID19Vaccination  packages shall face strict legal action! Such activities are in contravention to rules under the Nat’l COVID vaccination program and must cease immediately. #LargestVaccineDrive  @MoHFW_INDIA

Certain social media posts alleging health workers don’t have requisite PPEs in far flung areas are untenable. GoI has consistently worked towards strengthening health infra in peri-urban, tribal and rural areas to effectively fight #COVID19  across the country. @MoHFW_INDIA

History shall be kinder to you Dr Manmohan Singh ji if your offer of ‘constructive cooperation’ and valuable advice was followed by your @INCIndia  leaders as well in such extraordinary times ! Here’s my reply to your letter to Hon’ble PM Sh @narendramodi  ji ? @PMOIndia 

Some anti-social elements are spreading misinformation that after today’s #JantaCurfew  ends,the deadly virus will be wished away. They’re exhorting people to come outdoors after 9pm. This is false & an attempt to mislead the public. #SocialDistancing  must be adopted as a habit.

I feel privileged to take charge as Chairman of the World Health Organisation's Executive Board at its 147th session held virtually.I believe that health is central to economic performance and to enhancing human capabilities. @WHO  @PMOIndia  @MEAIndia  @MoHFW_INDIA  #EB147  #COVID19

Disgraceful for anyone to politicise such a critical issue. Sh @ShashiTharoor , Sh @yadavakhilesh  & Sh @Jairam_Ramesh  don't try to discredit well laid out science-backed protocols followed for approving #COVID19vaccines  Wake up & realise you are only discrediting yourselves !

Wash hands many times a day To keep Corona virus at bay! Do you know the science behind washing hands with soap & water to kill #coronavirus  ? The virus is a self-assembled nanoparticle with weakest link being the lipid bilayer Soap dissolves the fat membrane, turns it inactive

Heartbroken to inform that my dearest person on earth, my Mother, has left for heavenly abode. She was 89 & suffered a cardiac arrest today morning. A towering personality, my guide & philosopher, she has left a void in my life that none can fill. May her pious soul find peace.

In light of the surge in #COVID19  cases,GoI has decided to postpone #NEETPG2021  exam which was earlier scheduled to be held on Apr 18 Next date to be decided later Decision has been taken keeping wellbeing of our young medical students in mind. @PMOIndia  @MoHFW_INDIA  #NEETPG 

I’m DEEPLY ANGUISHED to see reports pouring in from Delhi, Noida,Warangal,Chennai etc that DOCTORS & PARAMEDICS are being ostracised in residential complexes & societies. Landlords are threatening to evict them fearing #COVID2019  infection. Pls don’t panic ! #CoronavirusLockdown
