Decline of cases
In a country where 25,166 infections have been reported in the last 24 hours, the record of administered doses coincides with the drop in positives for Govt-19, a figure that has not reached since mid-March, with the worst epidemic yet to come. ..
Govt cases in Asia have risen to 32.2 million since the outbreak, surpassing the United States alone, with about 36 million, according to the latest data from the Indian Ministry of Health.

Kovit-19 was attacked by a special virus in the Asian giants in April and May, recording more than 400,000 cases and more than 4,500 deaths a day during its peak epidemics.
Although the current figures are much lower than those of the day, Indian officials have warned that a third wave is likely to emerge later this month and reach its peak as a result of new genres emerging in the country. In mid-October.
India, which sees the only hope in eradicating the epidemic in the vaccine campaign, is trying to accelerate the rate of vaccinations so that the impact of this new wave does not leave the image of hospitals again on the brink of collapse and saturated cremations.
To this end, the Asian country has offered to vaccinate half of the population by the end of this year.
