Over 102 crore COVID-19 vaccine doses have been administered in the country so far, including more than 12 lakh doses administered on Sunday.

On Thursday this week, India administered its billionth vaccine. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, addressing the nation a day after, said it was "not just a number" but the symbol of the country's ability and of a "new India".

Meanwhile, as Diwali is approaching, the central government has issued a fresh set of COVID-19 guidelines to the state governments.

Union Health Secretary Rajesh Bhushan, in an official release, said, “States/UTs are further requested to ensure that non-adherence to COVID Appropriate behavior in public places is dealt with strongly. Inter-sectoral collaboration between health departments, law enforcement agencies, market and trade associations, civil society organizations, and community will be essential to curb any risk of a spike in COVID-19 trajectory.”
