More than 50 crore vaccine doses have been in the country with around 43.29 lakh doses administered only on Friday. Talking about the pace of vaccination, Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya said it took India 85 days to vaccinate 10 crore people. “India then took 45 days to touch the figure of 20 crore. In another 24 days, the figure reached 40 crore and in another 20 days we surpassed the figure of 50 crore,” Mandaviya said.
The pace of vaccination would improve further if the Drug Controller General of India (DCGI) gives emergency use authorisation (EUA) to single-dose vaccine of Johnson and Johnson. The Serum Institue of India has already applied for the authorisation. The SII has also done it for Covovax vaccine.
Meanwhile, the number of cases being reported from Kerala still remains a cause of concern for health officials. The southern state is still reporting around 20,000 cases almost on a daily basis. Some of the worst affected districts in Kerala are Malappuram, Ernakulam, and Thrissur.
