Coronavirus Case and Fatality Rate in India, Coronavirus Third Wave Highlights

Monday, 16th August 2021

As India marks its 75th anniversary of independence, we must reflect on the struggles and achievements made during our long battle against the novel coronavirus. As President Ram Nath Kovind stated during his address to the nation, we must proceed with extreme caution in the face of the highly unpredictable virus. Concerning the virus, AIIMS Director Dr Randeep Guleria has stated once again that if we practise Covid-appropriate behaviour, the country may avoid a rerun of the second wave horrors. In terms of accomplishments, the new coverage level in the national vaccination programme is one of the key milestones that the country has seen. According to current data, approximately 46% of the adult population in India has received at least one dose of the vaccine. In terms of fully vaccinated individuals, the figure is 13%. There was a lot of talk about herd immunity at the start of the pandemic. However, with new Covid variants being discovered on a regular basis, the concept may simply remain that. Newer variants are far more transmissible and can evade the Covid vaccines' immunity.
