According to a report, Covid vaccines would prevent over 42 lakh deaths in India in 2021.

19.8 million out of a possible 31.4 million COVID-19 deaths were prevented globally, according to a report in The Lancet Infectious Diseases journal . The study found that COVID-19 vaccinations saved over 42,10,000 lives in India if the World Health Organisations had followed through .

In the first year of the vaccination program, 19.8 million out of a possible 31.4 million COVID-19 deaths were prevented globally, according to a report in The Lancet Infectious Diseases journal, which based its conclusions on estimates of excess mortalities in the country during the outbreak.The study found that COVID-19 vaccinations saved over 42,10,000 lives in India if the World Health Organisations had followed through.According to Oliver Watson from the Imperial College London, the UK, the central estimate is accurate, with the uncertainty in this range ranging from 36,65,000 to 43,70,000.This modeling analysis concludes that the vaccination campaign in India has likely saved millions of lives.This graph shows how significant the vaccination has been, particularly in India, which was the first nation to experience the Delta variant, Watson said in an email.These numbers are based on estimates of excess mortality in India during the COVID-19 pandemic, which are ten times higher than the official number of 5,24,941 deaths reported so far.

Their model relies on a number of essential assumptions, including the exact proportions of which vaccine types have been delivered, how they were delivered, and the precise date in which new virus variants were introduced in each country (they also assumed that the correlation between age and the number of COVID-19 deaths among infected individuals is the same for every region).
