Amritsar, June 11
Cases of the coronavirus continue to decline, but sadly, the death toll continues to plummet. Corona infections killed six people on Thursday, while 115 new cases were reported. The relief is that 164 infected patients have recovered in 24 hours. Corona cases have reportedly declined in recent days, but the death toll has risen sharply, which is a matter of grave concern. Seeing the declining cases of corona virus, people have become careless and are walking around without masks. The health department has repeatedly appealed to the public to follow the rules so that corona is not fatal. Recovered: 164 Total Infected: 45890 Recovered: 42565 Deaths so far: 1520 Active Case: 1805 Vaccination has slowed as the rate of corona infection has decreased. Only 485 people were vaccinated in the district on Thursday. In fact, after the end of Covishield, the health department has started the work of administering covaxin in the district. A second dose of Covishield is also being given. The pace of vaccination is extremely slow. People between the ages of 18 and 44 are not being vaccinated. Only 407995 have been vaccinated in 5 months. The scope of vaccination has been limited due to non-delivery of stock of Covishield from the Center.
