The caseload for coronavirus infection in India dropped to 3.29 lakh. This comes after 14 days taking the total tally of coronavirus cases to 2,29,92,517. The data is as per the Union Health Ministry data of Tuesday.

However, the death count climbed to 2,49,992 with 3,876 fresh fatalities. And the national COVID-19 recovery rate stands at 82.75 per cent.

Moreover, Delhi has now started preparations for the third wave of the pandemic. Arvind Kejriwal and Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain also made an inspectional visit to a COVID-19 care centre located near GTB hospital earlier today.

Several states are now under a lockdown or similar restrictions. WHO Chief Scientist Soumya Swaminathan says that there is no available data so far which suggests that the double mutant strain of coronavirus is resistant to vaccines.

The government on the other hand is defending its coronavirus infection vaccination policy, saying that the price factor will not have any impact on beneficiaries.
