New Delhi: We currently have the only remedy to prevent coronavirus infection. The maximum number of people will be vaccinated. The deaths from corona will be controlled equally.

Corona Vaccination in India:

However, even after passing the vaccination program for more than three months, the same number of vaccinations has not been done, which should have been done by now.

Only 5% Vaccination in 37 districts:

The India Today Data Intelligence Unit (DIU) analyzed the number of vaccine roll outs district-wise. According to DIU data, out of 726 districts, only 37 districts (only 5 percent) have been given the first dose of vaccine so far. Even in these 37 districts, only 20 percent or more people have received their first dose of vaccine.

According to the CoWIN app data, the two districts that performed the best in vaccination are 'Mahe' of Puducherry and 'Jamnagar' of Gujarat. According to the data, these two districts have already given the first dose of corona vaccine to about one third of the total population.

Most of the districts are also where vaccination is happening very slowly. According to the data, about 58 percent of the districts have vaccine coverage of less than 10 percent. In the other 37 percent districts, vaccine coverage is 10 to 20 percent. Karnataka's Bijapur and Assam's South Salmara are among the lowest vaccination districts.

According to CoWIN data, many districts in Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu and the northeastern states have vaccinated less than 10 percent of their population. However, in most districts of Rajasthan, Gujarat, Chhattisgarh, Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh and Kerala, more than 10 percent of the population has been given corona vaccine.

Corona in India:

According to the interim report of the ministry till eight o'clock on Tuesday night, a total of 16,04,18,105 doses of covid-19 vaccine have been given so far in the country.

According to the ministry, 94,61,633 health workers have been given the first dose while 63,20,945 health workers have been given the second dose.
