Covid-19 update: India reports over 15k cases

India has recorded 15,223 new coronavirus infections in the last 24 hours, continuing its low streak of cases, increasing the overall tally to 1,06,10,883, the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare said.

India, which recorded around 1 lakh cases per day three months ago, has been recording less than 20,000 daily new infections.

The country had reported just 10,064 new coronavirus infections on Tuesday, which is the lowest single-day spike in seven months. India had recorded over 10,000 cases on June 6 last year for the first time.

With 151 fresh deaths, the overall toll in India stood at 1,52,869, the ministry added.

As per the Ministry’s data, 1,02,65,706 people have recovered so far and currently there are 1,92,308 active cases. While the recovery rate stands at 96.70 per cent, the fatality rate at 1.44 per cent.

The nationwide immunisation drive began across the country on January 16, with approval of two Covid vaccines — Covishield by SII and Covaxin by Bharat Biotech — in the country.

As many as 8,06,484 beneficiaries have received the Covid vaccines doses so far, with 1,31,649 people being inoculated on Wednesday. Around 55 per cent or 34,583 healthcare warriors were vaccinated across Karnataka on the fifth day of the drive, said the state health bulletin on Wednesday.
