“A total of 16 states, UTs have achieved 100 per cent first dose vaccination coverage, four states and UTs are between 96-99 per cent,” joint secretary of Union health ministry Lav Agarwal said at a press conference.
He said the present data indicates that unlike evidence during the earlier COVID-19 surge, the current variant surge is not associated with higher chances of complications or deaths in COVID-19 positive patients.
