Coronavirus Vaccines Made The Difference After The Second Wave:- The second wave of coronavirus shattered many lives and families across the nation. The Indian government was badly criticized as the Centre could not predict and handle the situation well. There was a huge scarcity of vaccinations, hospital beds and medical facilities. The experts warned of a possible third wave of coronavirus but the situation is very much in control in India. The daily tally of cases are fluctuating between 20,000 and 30,000 currently. As per the report that is tracked in the first seven weeks of the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic, there are 121 deaths weekly per million among the non-vaccinated people who are aged above 60 years.
There are 2.6 weekly deaths per million among the people who have taken the first shot of the coronavirus vaccine. There are 1.76 weekly deaths per million among them who have taken both the doses for coronavirus vaccine. This makes it clear that the surge is controlled because of the vaccination drive which turned intense in the recent weeks. As of now, 24 percent of the Indian population above the age group of 60 years are yet to be vaccinated. As per the reports from the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), the samples that are tested yesterday in India are said to be 15,06,254 and the samples tested in total in the country are 56,89,56,439. On an average, the vaccination drive is getting close to 70 lakh people vaccinated on a regular basis and the Indian government-administered close to 88 crore vaccine doses till date.
