The slogan, “Go Corona Go,” that Union Minister Ramdas Athawale gave earlier this year is showing its power, and the cases are subsiding as per the minister. On Monday, Union Minister Ramdas Athawale said that the vaccine for Covid-19 would be available within a month or two.
The Covid-19 will have to go ultimately. He said, “COVID-19 vaccine will be available in a month or two. I gave the slogan ‘go corona go’ on February 20, and now the cases are subsiding. It will remain for 6-7 months, ultimately it will have to go away.” The video of him chanting had gone viral sometime in March 2020.
In February, Athwale coined the slogan “Go Corona, Go,” which caught the eye of netizens, and the catchy tune was all over social media for quite some time. The slogan that became the centre of countless memes has brought a smile to many faces during the hard times.
Union Minister Athawale himself had eventually tested positive for coronavirus and has since recovered.
