NEW DELHI: India's daily toll has fallen below 90K for the first time since the second wave of the disease broke out. Union health minister data revealed that there are 84,332 cases of COVID-19 reported in 24 hours and 4,002 deaths.
There are 2,93,59,155 cases of COVID-19 and out of that, 10,80,690 are active cases, 2,79,11,384 recovered and 3,67,081 people died.
Since the country's COVID-19 graph has been on the decline since last month, it suggested that some control is gained over the ongoing second wave of the pandemic.
For those people who didn't get the second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, the government said there is no need to panic about the need for an immediate change in the dosage interval.
"We must remember that when we increased the gap, we had to consider the risk posed by the virus to those who have received only one dose," said Dr. V K Paul, member (Health) at NITI Aayog.
Decision regarding interval between 2 doses of #Covishield has been reviewed & updated based on scientific studies in context of prevailing #COVID19 scenario in our country.— Dr Harsh Vardhan (@drharshvardhan) June 12, 2021
Any changes in future too shall be taken by NTAGI guided by the same principles…https://t.co/XboPUAjU3b pic.twitter.com/q4lzgcpQmW
