683K doses in a day. Only a matter of a week or two before we reach the level of administering 1 million doses per day, Inshallah.

It will be difficult. There is an issue going on with in government ministry of finance and health ministry regarding extra funding for more vaccine purchases. Ministry of finance recommended ministry of health take a loan of $330+ million for vaccine purchases as the release of payment by ministry of finance will put further pressure on our currency, foreign reserves and rupee value.
