American billionaire and philanthropist Bill Gates has congratulated India for reaching a "tremendous milestone" by administering a record number of COVID vaccine doses in a single day – 10 million.
The Microsoft co-founder tagged the Twitter handles of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and India's Ministry of Health and Family Welfare and called the milestone a result of "collective efforts of the government, R&D community, vaccine manufacturers, and millions of health workers."
​The chief scientist of the World Health Organisation (WHO), Soumya Swaminathan, praised India on Friday for vaccinating 50 percent of the adult population with at least one dose.
PM Modi also called the goal a "momentous feat" for the country and applauded people for getting vaccinated and making the inoculation drive a success.
