- Special talk with former chairman of British National Health Service, said – Johnson government gave billions of dollars in advance for vaccines
Britain and the United States have already suffered the hardships India is facing in the second wave of Corona. But by rapidly vaccinating, understanding the challenges and formulating a strategy, he almost stopped the deaths from infection.
The UK’s National Health Service (NHS) also owes it. Malcolm John Grant, former NHS chairman, spoke exclusively to the Media Platform Inquiry. Lessons from the pandemic, future epidemics, challenges related to people’s health and issues such as the role of innovation in it were discussed with them, read the excerpts …
On political leadership
In fact, the epidemic spread in Britain in March last year, at that time in Italy was at its peak. The British government thought that this is not China, people will not accept the lockdown. There were also protests. The government delayed taking the decision. Trump continued to deny the epidemic in America, without masking rallies. Recently this happened in some places in India too. Now the situation is that less than 7 deaths are taking place in the UK in a week.
Vaccination and Health Infra
The NHS is like religion in Britain. The aim is to provide high-level health facilities to the people completely free of cost. The NHS has been aggressive from the start regarding the vaccine supply. The National Task Force was formed, there was no intervention of the government in it. The government also gave billions of dollars in advance to pharmaceutical companies for research and vaccines. When 50% of the beds were filled in the country, physiotherapists volunteered to serve up to datinst, they are also helping in vaccination. It is possible in India too, experts are doctors, good hospitals.
The best people to analyze data. Surprisingly, the scientists had to write a letter demanding that the data be shared. In contrast, every small essential information was shared with every unit of the NHS in Britain, so that even doctors sitting in remote small villages can solve this problem well. The entire 35 thousand practitioners were clear about what and how to do it.
On opening economy
The leader of almost every country is eager to say that all is over. We have also said so, but we have to move very cautiously. Boundaries have to pay attention, there is a big danger. In the UK, 68% of adult vaccines have taken their first dose, while 35% have taken both. These things encourage us to open the economy slowly.
Lesson from pandemic
Mistakes that happened in 2020-21 should not happen in future. We did not close the borders on time, the brunt of this would have been borne. Our university is working closely with pharma companies. Every area has tremendous talent in these universities. Great work has also been done in genomics. Another important point is that Britain and America learn from the initial mistakes and start accepting scientific projections, according to the strategy, so that they can overcome the corona.
Failed to respond to the epidemic
More than 1.3 million deaths have occurred in Britain from Corona. Both Britain and America are rich countries, so the question arose as to why they could not control it. Initially India’s curve was flat, but the situation deteriorated last month. Indeed, India thought last summer that it defeated Corona, while scientists were warning of the second, third wave. Still relaxed.
