India administers more than 13 crore doses of Corona vaccines to its citizens

The country has achieved a remarkable feat in its vaccination drive. India has become the fastest country to administer over 13 crore doses of vaccines to its citizens. The Health and Family Welfare Ministry has informed today, around 30 lakh vaccine doses were administered to the beneficiaries in the last 24 hours.

However, Covid-19 pandemic is continuously breaking the records of fresh cases and deaths. The rapid rise in the Covid-19 cases has increased the active caseloads in the several States and Union Territories. As a result, the recovery rate is continuously declining in the country.

The Health Ministry said, a record number of over two lakh 95 thousand new cases have been reported in the country within 24 hours. This is the highest number of new cases registered in a single day since the outbreak of Covid-19 pandemic in the country. With this, cumulative positive cases crossed one crore fifty six lakh mark.

The Ministry has said, there are over twenty one lakh fifty seven thousand active cases in the country at present which comprises 13.81 per cent of the total positive cases. The country has also registered the highest number of deaths in a single day. A total of two thousand twenty three deaths have been reported in the country within 24 hours, taking the toll to over one lakh eighty two thousand across the country.

Amid the rising new cases, the recovery rate has further declined to 85 per cent. The Ministry informed that more than one lakh sixty seven thousand people have recovered from the corona virus infection in the last 24 hours. So far, more than one crore thirty two lakh patients have already been recovered from this infectious disease in the country.
