Meanwhile, the government Tuesday asserted India will have enough COVID-19 vaccine doses to inoculate up to one crore people per day by mid-July or early August, the government asserted on Tuesday as it underlined that there is no shortage of jabs and called for patience citing the country’s large population.

Noting that the ferocious second wave is on the verge of abating, the government said that ramping up of testing as well as containment at the district level “has worked” in bringing down the cases.

At the same time, it cautioned that while the easing of lockdown is imperative, it has to be done very slowly.

“Whatever we know from possible scenarios presented by eminent people, it (COVID) will decline and June will be much much better but the concerns are when we open up how do we behave because the virus has not gone anywhere,” NITI Aayog member (Health) VK Paul said.

Addressing a press conference, ICMR Director-General Dr. Balram Bhargava said India’s vaccination is being ramped up and “by December we hope to have the whole country vaccinated”.
