Principal Scientific Adviser to the Central Government, Prof. Vijay Raghavan said that the vaccine will also affect the new strains of Corona found in the UK and South Africa. No such evidence has been found so far that it is clear that the existing vaccine is not affecting these new strains. Pro. Raghavan said that the vaccine will be available soon. However, rolling out will take time.

Meanwhile, on behalf of the central government, Health Secretary Rajesh Bhushan presented a weekly report on Corona. He said that the most impact of corona has been seen on men. Of the total infected so far, 63% are infected, while 37% are female. In terms of age, 8% of the patients are under 17 years of age. 13% of 18 to 25 year olds, 39% of 26 to 44 year olds, 26% of 45 to 60 year olds and 14% of people over 60 years of age have been infected.

What did NITI Aayog member Dr. VK Paul say?

  • The country’s large population is susceptible to infection during this cold season.
  • The new strain of Corona has left the UK and reached many countries including India.
  • The new strain has its own pace. So we need to be more careful. No one should be negligent.

What did Health Secretary Rajesh Bhushan say?

  • So far, before the news of Corona’s new strain came out, we have tested 5000 gynome sequences in different labs across the country.
  • Now we are increasing the number of genome sequencing investigations.
  • Active cases are continuously decreasing in the country. Last week there has been only 2.25% positivity rate.
  • Investigations are being done in 10 labs in the country to identify new strains of Corona.

Only 16 thousand cases came on Monday

The country received only 16 thousand 72 cases on Monday. This figure is the lowest since June 23. Then there were 15 thousand 656 cases. In the last 24 hours, 24 thousand 822 patients were cured. 250 patients died. Thus the active case declined by 9011. Now only 2.67 lakh patients are being treated.

A total of 1.02 crore corona have been infected so far. Out of these, 98.06 lakh patients have been cured. 1.48 lakh patients have died. These figures are taken from covid19india.org.

Instructing states for Center’s New Year Celebration
The Union Home Ministry has written a letter to the state governments asking them to keep an eye on New Year celebrations. In this letter written by Home Secretary Ajay Bhalla, it has been said that the number of new corona cases and active cases in the country is decreasing. Therefore, caution is also needed. The ministry said that if necessary, the administration can impose restrictions like night curfew at the local level.

What else did the ministry say?

  • Santosh Selja, wife of former Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Shanta Kumar, died on Tuesday morning from Corona. State Health Minister Rajiv Saizal gave this information.
  • The guideline period applicable for surveillance of Kovid-19 patients has been extended till 31 January 2021.
  • Care should be taken in the containment zone to prevent infection from spreading. Surveillance is necessary to prevent corona new strains from coming in as well.
  • NEGVAC has prepared priorization for vaccination. Health workers, front line workers, those above 50 years and those under 50 years of age who are at greater risk of corona will be given the vaccine first.
  • Finalize and upload the data of such people.
  • Complete storage, transportation, security, and other arrangements, including vaccine.
  • Strictly follow the rules of masks and social distancing.

5 million doses of Kovishield are ready
Adar Poonawalla, CEO of Serum Institute, which manufactures Corona Vaccine Kovyshield, has said that the company currently has 4-5 crore doses of Covishield. Emergency use of the vaccine may be approved in a few days. After this, the center has to decide how many doses and how soon it is needed. Poonawala said that by July 2021, our company will be able to produce up to 30 crore doses.

And what did Poonawala say?
India is part of COVAX. 50% of what we prepare will be for India.
India’s population is very high. So I think that the 5 crore doses we have prepared so far should be applied to the people of India first.
The initial 6 months of 2021 will be shortage of the vaccine. Nobody can help in this. But after this, the vaccine supply will be correct by August-September.
