In the last 24 hours, India recorded 44,877 new COVID-19 cases, down 11 per cent from yesterday’s 50,407 instances. The daily positive rate of 3.17 percent is down little from yesterday. 4.46 percent of people are optimistic on a weekly basis.

The news: In the last 24 hours, at least 1,17,591 people have recovered, and 172.81 crore vaccination doses have been provided.

  • Frontline and healthcare workers, as well as individuals over 60 with comorbidities, are given booster doses. Vaccines for children aged 5 to 15 years would be implemented as soon as the government receives a recommendation from a panel of experts, Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya said on Saturday.
  • He stated that the expert panel has yet to make a recommendation on this category’s immunisation.

What they say: “A panel of scientists recommends when and how to vaccinate, as well as which age groups to vaccinate. Within one week, we had implemented the precaution group’s advice. We will undoubtedly put its recommendation (for the age group of 5 to 15) into action as soon as we receive  it,”.

COVID-19 vaccinations for children aged 15 to 18 years old began last month.
