Coronavirus Third Wave India July 22 Highlights, Coronavirus Statistics India News Highlights: India vaccine woes refuse to go anytime soon. Despite tall claims by the Narendra Modi government and regular updates showing cumulative Covid jabs running into crores, the daily shots have tanked to a new low. The latest Cowin data shows that India managed to vaccinate somewhere around 23 lakh on July 21st. This is an extremely worrisome status. In its affidavit, the Centre has already told the Supreme Court that it has a target of vaccinating India’s entire adult population against coronavirus by December this year. With the current pace, this looks very unrealistic unless some stringent measures are not taken. The daily vaccination rate plummets even as the Centre maintains that there are around 3 crore unutilized doses still available with the states.
India on Thursday reported over 40,000 new Covid-19 infections for the second day running. The latest government data says that 41,383 fresh coronavirus cases were reported in the last 24 hours. The fatalities tally also witnessed a slump as there was no backlog reconciled by any state. The updated health bulletin says that 507 Indians lost their lives due to Covid. At present, India’s recovery rate is 97.35 per cent. The number of active cases has dropped to 4,09,394. The daily positivity rate of 2.41 per cent has been registered, the official data says. India’s positivity rate has stayed below 3 per cent in the last month. This is a good sign for the nation.
