So far, 10 crore people have been killed and in many cases, many people did not have their close relatives in the last time. Even in his last rites, his kin could not be present and lakhs of people who have been cured are also going through a lot of health problems and financial crises. ‘

The general public is also thinking about the conservation of mother nature.

The vaccine, which was yet to take 10 years in the search process, is now being completed in just 10 months – including the development, testing and subsequent market of vaccines.
