As per the data released by MoHFW, 80.85 crore COVID-19 vaccines have been administered so far under the Nationwide Vaccination Drive. In addition to that more than 5.43 crore (5,43,43,490 )balance and unutilised COVID-19 vaccine doses are still available with the states and union territories to be administered.
It has to be noted that currently, India's active caseload stands at 3,18,181 which is the lowest in 183 days. The recovery rate currently stands at 97.72 per cent. Over the last 24 hours, 43,938 recoveries have been recorded.
Now, the major cause of concern for the people is the 3rd wave of the COVID-19 pandemic in India - when it will hit the country and what will be its impact. According to an ANI report on August 23, 2021, the National Institute of Disaster Management (NIDM) warned of a third wave peak in October in its report to the Prime Minister's Office (PMO). It has to be noted that the NIDM's report quoted Reuters' opinion survey of 40 experts that forecast that the third wave of the COVID-19 pandemic is likely to hit India between July 15, 2021, and October 13, 2021.
It has to be noted that insurance regulator IRDAI ordered renewal and purchase of corona special policy for the next six months, that is, till March 31, 2022. The IRDAI had ordered the launch of special Corona Kavach Policy last year to provide relief to the common man, but the renewal of the policy was only till September 30, 2021. Now, the IRDAI had ordered renewal for another six months due to the anticipation of COVID-19 3rd wave.
Again, as per the data from MoHFW, the weekly positivity rate in the country is 2.07 per cent, which is less than 3 per cent for the last 87 days. The daily positivity rate is 2.57 per cent which is also less than 3 per cent for the last 21 days.
