Govt dismisses media report that it wasted time in effective COVID Pandemic relief

@MoHFW_INDIA
Government today dismissed a media report that it has wasted time in effective allocation and distribution of COVID Pandemic relief material.
 
It has termed the report of a TV channel as misleading which has claimed that while the first consignment of COVID-19 assistance arrived in India on 25th of last month, the Centre took seven days to frame the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) of distributing these life-saving medical supplies.
 
In a statement, Health Ministry said, while the SOP for allocations was issued by it on 2nd of this month, the work for receipt, allocation and distribution to the States and UTs through the Central and other Health Institutions started immediately as the global community started to support India's efforts for fighting the pandemic.
 
The Ministry said, the coordination cell under the Additional Secretary was created on 26th April and started work instantly.
 
The inter-ministerial cell for prompt and effective coordination between various stakeholders was also set up.
