In a virtual global conclave of health and technology experts from across the world will be held on July 5 where India will share how this system works. “ More than 325 members from 67 countries and 12 United Nations missions are participating global conclave,” Dr R S Sharma, Co-WIN Chief said.
Pregnant women can now register as other citizens do and there will be no separate classification/column on the Co-WIN app, he added.

We are ready to implement nationally if the government gives a go ahead, he added.
