India reported 10,064 new covid-19 cases in the last 24 hours, the lowest single day spike since second week of June. 

Out of the total cases, active cases further dropped to 2 lakh while recoveries went up to over 1.02 crore. With 137 deaths reported on Monday, the lowest since the May, the toll now stands at over 1.52 lakh. 

Kerala reported 3,346 new cases, while Maharashtra found 1,924 new infections.

Over 3.81 lakh priority group beneficiaries have been vaccinated three days into India’s  inoculation drive. The country reported 580 severe events and 2 persons — a 52 year old in Moradabad & a 42 year old in Karnataka — have reportedly died due to cardiopulmonary disease after getting their shots. The deaths have not been linked to the vaccines till now.

Centre on Monday flagged Kerala and Tamil Nadu over their poor performance, in vaccinating at less than 25 per cent of the priority groups and highlighted the “vaccine hesitancy” found in the frontline workers. Similarly, Punjab and Chhattisgarh were also pulled over their “poor coverage.”
