Maharashtra Deputy CM Ajit Pawar says more Covid-19 cases among those who are fully vaccinated. Here’s why:
“We conducted a survey and found that around 0.19% of people who have taken first dose are found infected with Covid-19.
“But around 0.25% people were found infected after taking both doses of vaccine.
“On consulting experts, we were informed that those who’ve taken both the doses aren’t following Covid protocol and exposing themselves to the virus.
“Experts say even when we are easing restrictions, citizens must take precautions and follow protocol.”
India’s COVID-19 tally had crossed the 20-lakh mark on August 7, 2020, 30 lakh on August 23, 40 lakh on September 5 and 50 lakh on September 16. It went past 60 lakh on September 28, 70 lakh on October 11, crossed 80 lakh on October 29, 90 lakh on November 20 and surpassed the one-crore mark on December 19.
India crossed the grim milestone of two crore on May 4 and three crore on June 23.
The 277 new fatalities include 122 from Kerala and 56 from Maharashtra.
