The number of active cases has dropped to 23.43 lakh, with more than 2.48 crore individuals completely free of the infection.
Moderna expects to launch a single-dose vaccination in India in 2022, while Pfizer plans to sell five crore doses in 2021. Johnson & Johnson’s vaccines are unlikely to be exported from the United States to other nations in the foreseeable future.
The 91,960 doses of Covaxin that the Delhi government is anticipated to receive in June will only be used to provide those who had their first injection in May a second shot.
