India lost its way in the second wave of coronavirus. Shooting of movies and TV shows has been suspended. In the second phase, the Maharashtra government has announced a lockdown. In this situation, many Bollywood stars are coming forward to help people. This time the production company Yash Raj Films extended a helping hand.
Yash Raj Films has decided to vaccinate 30,000 co-workers in the film industry and is trying to procure 60,000 corona vaccines for it. Yash Raj Films will bear all the expenses.
According to a letter from the Federation of Western India Cine Employees (FWICE), Yash Raj Films has decided to vaccinate 30,000 members free of cost. Yash Raj Films has requested Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray to allow them to buy 70,000 vaccines.
According to the British media BBC, corona infections have crossed two crore across India. More than three lakh people have been infected daily for about two weeks.
So far more than two lakh 20 thousand people have died. But experts say the actual number of deaths and infections in Corona is even higher in India. Sample testing is much less common and many patients are dying before they can see a doctor.
