The Indian Medical Association hailed Modi and all stakeholders on this accomplishment. “IMA is confident, with the humane leadership of Honorable Prime Minister and the fervent works of healthcare professionals, soon we will be able to make India free from Corona and get back to our normal routines,” IMA said in a statement. 

Director-General, WHO took to Twitter to congratulate India and PM Modi earlier in the day.
