After a large festival in the southern state of Kerala, India, reported 46,759 new coronavirus infections on Saturday (Aug 28), the highest number in over two months. According to government data, the overall number of Covid-19 cases in the South Asian country has risen to about 32.7 million, with deaths up 509 to 437,370 in the last 24 hours.
In the previous 24 hours, India has given out over 10 million vaccination shots, a national record that Prime Minister Narendra Modi described as a “momentous feat” for the country as it prepares for another outbreak of covid 19 induced infections.
In total, India has delivered around 628 million vaccination doses, with more than half of the country’s 944 million adults receiving at least one shot and 15% receiving the needed two doses. By December, the government hopes to have covered the whole adult population.
“Today is the day to record immunization numbers!” On Twitter, Modi stated. “Crossing 1 crore (10 million) is a significant achievement.” The previous high-water mark for a single day was 9.2 million.
The Serum Institute of India, which produces roughly 150 million doses of its version of the AstraZeneca vaccine per month, has boosted India’s vaccine production this month. India recorded more than 40,000 new infections for the second day in a row on Friday, prompting a high increase in immunizations. Cases had dropped to a five-month low of 25,166 in the middle of the month but have surged substantially in the last three days, primarily in Kerala.
