India achieved the landmark after the beginning of covid-19 vaccination drive 85 days ago on 16 January this year.

Twenty-eight of the new cases are in Brookings County.

The promotion begins on April 12 and goes until May 15, or until all 10,000 people have received their cash prize.

The vaccination exercise as a tool to protect the most vulnerable population groups in the country from COVID-19 continues to be regularly reviewed and monitored at the highest level, it said.

There was a slight decrease in the number of COVID-19 patients in hospitals throughout the state.

Of the statewide cases, 2,465 are classified as active (down by 19 from Thursday). For the first time, more than 4,000 deaths were recorded in a single day with 4,195 reported.

Statistics from World Health Organization indicate that 45 African countries have received Covid-19 vaccine, 43 have begun inoculating high-risk groups while almost 13 million of the 31.6 million doses delivered so far have been administered. Only Seychelles and Mauritius have acquired enough vaccine doses to reach the 20 per cent vaccination target.

Bhubaneswar: People should get rid of the misconception that getting vaccinated will protect them from Covid-19, said Odisha Health Director Bijay Panigrahi on Friday.

"Eight states account for 60.62 per cent of the total doses given so far in the country", the ministry said.

The government says it will follow up with farms to administer the second dose through the local public health unit where the individuals work.

"It is clearly more contagious, and it is likely to be more deadly".
