India’s vaccination drive much slower than targeted in first two weeks
- India has become the sixth country to cross 2 million doses, but the pace is much slower than is needed to meet the August target. Meanwhile, the virus threat continued to recede across the country, except in Kerala
India this week became the sixth country to administer more than 2 million doses of the coronavirus vaccine, even as the infection spread continued to subside. Nearly two weeks into the ambitious vaccination drive, Karnataka led the way with over 264,000 doses by Wednesday. Kerala, the only state where the virus is still spreading fast, has given 82,514 doses so far.
