Coronavirus Cases and Deaths in India in Last 24 Hours, Covid-19 Vaccine Tracker Live, Yellow, Black Fungus Infection in India May 28 Highlights: India will vaccinate all by Dec 2021, says Javadekar; Delhi to begin gradual unlocking from Monday

Coronavirus in India Live News, Coronavirus Cases in India Latest UpdateA steady decline in new COVID-19 cases has been recorded in India for the last 20 days. Twenty-four states have also reported decline in active COVID-19 cases since the last week, the Union Health Ministry said on Thursday.

Covid-19 Cases and Deaths in India Today Highlights: As the world tries to vaccinate the younger population with the US starting the inoculation programmes specifically focused on the children, the Niti Aayog has said that the WHO has not recommended the need to vaccinate the young. This was something the Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman also said on Twitter. At a time when the health experts are talking about the probability of the third wave of the coronavirus impacting the kids more severely, this confusing messaging from the top may hamper the policymaking for the future. The Centre must clearly spell out the agenda and roadmap for the next quarter if we don’t want to see a repeat of what happened in April.

Coronavirus in India News Live: India registers 1.73 lakh new cases, positivity rate remains below 10% for last 5 days

On Thursday, the government said the second COVID-19 wave in India is on the “downswing” and hoped this trend will be sustained even when curbs are systematically relaxed. The Centre also highlighted that the number of active cases in the country is “still very high”. Amid a fall in the number of daily cases and some improvement in the status of Covid bed, medical oxygen, and medicine, the Home Ministry also issued fresh guidelines on Covid management. It directed the states/UTs to continue the ongoing Covid-19 guidelines till June 30 and asked them to go for intensive and local containment measures in districts with a high number of cases to check the spread of the disease.

Kerala government said on Friday that it will issue COVID-19 vaccination certificates with passport numbers to those persons who require them to go abroad for job or studies; and need travel clearance.

As states spar with the Centre of vaccine stock and vaccine wastage data, India is losing out precious time for preparing for the war ahead. Here are the latest news, views, updates on state-wise lockdowns and all vaccine research from India and around the world:
