On September 11, 2015, India suffered the worst pandemic in its history.
It has since then seen its government take steps to tackle the virus, with the government providing free vaccines and free medicines to anyone with an insurance card, while also introducing new and more comprehensive schemes for immunisation.
The country has also been able to ramp up its efforts in reducing the spread of the virus.
In fact, India has taken the unprecedented step of announcing that everyone with a valid healthcare card, regardless of age, can now get a vaccine and a free flu shot in a bid to stem the spread.
The announcement was made on September 18, 2015.
The pandemic has affected all sections of the country, but especially in rural areas.
The government has also made major efforts to eradicate the disease, including with the launch of the National Vaccination Campaign.
It is estimated that over 1.8 million Indians have been vaccinated, making India one of the most immunised countries in the world.
There is still no way to stop a virus like this from spreading and affecting other countries, but India is now one of few countries to have taken this step.
The next steps to stop India from spreading the pandemics can be seen from this chart.
