Dhaka: Bangladesh PM Sheikh Hasina on Sunday congratulated her Indian counterpart Narendra Modi after his government administered one billion Covid-19 vaccine doses on Oct 21, 2021.

In a message to Modi, Sheikh Hasina called this as a remarkable success achieved in dealing with the damages that the Covid-19 pandemic has inflicted on humankind, reports Dhaka Tribune.

She also informed Modi that her government has also been carrying out a mass vaccination program in Bangladesh as over 60 million people have been vaccinated using jabs collected from multiple sources.             

India also witnessed devastating waves of the pandemic when people in the country struggled to find oxygen supplies and hospital beds.

The spike in deaths had left crematoriums and burial grounds overwhelmed.
