India to share CoWin's development story with 20 countries; netizens ask 'will they also get delayed OTP?'

India will share the development story of Co-WIN, the digital platform that helped it launch and implement a nationwide COVID-19 vaccination programme, with more than 20 countries that have shown interest in adopting the portal to run their own inoculation drives.

In a joint initiative by the Union ministries of health, external affairs and the National Health Authority, a virtual Co-WIN Global Conclave will be organised on June 30, which will see participation from health and technology experts representing countries across the globe.

Several countries such as Vietnam, Peru, Mexico, Iraq, the Dominican Republic, Panama, Ukraine, Nigeria, the United Arab Emirates and Uganda have expressed interest in learning about the Co-WIN technology to run their own Covid vaccination programmes, sources said.

When contacted, Dr R S Sharma, Chairman of the Empowered Group on Vaccine Administration (Co-WIN) and CEO of the National Health Authority, said several countries have expressed interest in the Co-WIN platform, which is being used to run the world's largest Covid vaccination drive.

At the time of the filing of the story, Co-WIN had witnessed 31,06,84,894 registrations and over 28.33 crore Covid vaccine doses were administered in the country.

The news has gone viral on Twitter with many feeling proud of India. However, there are also those who are still complaining about the app's irregular functioning.

Have a look.
