Pandemic Status of India
Around mid-March there was a sudden surge in Covid-19 infections and it increased rapidly, resulting in more than 400,000 recorded daily cases. The numbers were rising subsequently until lately the cases have witnessed a dip. The savage second Covid wave that wreaked havoc across the country killing thousands and infecting lakhs of people daily apart from breaking the back of medical infrastructure may finally be waning. However, the war against the deadly infection is far from over. States like Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Delhi, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, Bihar, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh and Telangana, were worst affected by the second wave showing continued plateauing or decrease in daily new COVID-19 cases. Lockdown of 15 days, restrictions on mass gatherings and shutting down non-essential activities in the states with a hike of COVID-19, have helped reduce the rate of infection growth and the cases started plateauing gradually. After registering a steady rise for two months, the active cases has now reduced to over 37,15,221, accounting for 16.16 per cent of the total infections, while the national COVID-19 recovery rate was recorded at 82.75 percent. Currently, there are two COVID vaccines being administered in India. These include the Covaxin and Covishield. To fight the novel coronavirus and to build immunity against the virus, getting vaccinated is a must.
Status of Covid Vaccination in Maharashtra
India has so far given more than 100 million doses of two approved vaccines – Covishield and Covaxin. Maharashtra recently crossed the one crore-mark in COVID-19 Vaccination, touching 1,00,38,421 doses, the highest by any state. The state is leading the overall vaccination drive with 11,79,70,191 total doses so far. Earlier the COVID-19 Vaccination was to be provided for free from May 1st 2021 to all the citizens ranging from 18-45 age group. But due to the dearth of Covid-19 vaccine doses, the state government decided to take a haul on the drive temporarily. Over 2.75 Lakh vaccine doses are remaining for this group. It will be further utilized for 45 years and above group now. Getting vaccinated is a crucial step in order to prevent the third wave in the near future.
