An estimated 500,000 people in India are being vaccinated with the coronavirus, a new strain that is causing widespread illness and death in some parts of the country.
The virus, also known as COVID-19, is spreading rapidly in the Indian subcontinent, and the country has recorded more than 3,600 new cases, according to the World Health Organization.
India has a history of heavy vaccination efforts, and there have been some successes.
Since July, the government has vaccinated more than 9 million people, and health officials have also warned that the virus could spread through people’s blood.
The government also announced a vaccination program in August, aimed at increasing the number of registered vaccination centers and providing free vaccination supplies to residents and businesses.
But some people have complained that they have not received vaccines, or they have been told they cannot be vaccinated at all.
India’s first coronaviral pandemic in 2013 killed more than 10,000.
Since then, the country’s vaccination effort has focused on vaccinating the poor and vulnerable, including children and the elderly, as well as in areas with high vaccination rates.
A new report released Friday by the Indian Council for Research on Immunization (ICRI) estimates that more than 6.4 million people have been vaccinated in the country, with nearly 2.3 million people receiving two doses of the vaccine.
The WHO says about 500,00 people in the southern state of Kerala have been infected, and 1.3 lakh have died.
The WHO says the virus has also infected more than 1.5 million in western Uttar Pradesh and Bihar, where the first cases have been reported.
