New Delhi: India recorded 24,010 fresh COVID-19 cases in the last 24 hours, pushing the overall caseload to 9,93,56,557. The death toll in the country has mounted to 1,44,451 with 355 new fatalities.

The national recovery rate stands at 95 percent. There are 3,322,366 active COVID-19 infections in the country, constituting 3.24 percent of the total caseload.

Meanwhile, Professor Randeep Guleria, the Chief of Delhi’s prestigious All-India Institute of Medical Sciences said to the media on Wednesday that it could take up to six months before a sufficient number of people could be vaccinated to break the chain of coronavirus transmission and another six months before life could get close to the pre-pandemic days. “

I’m hopeful that in the next six months, we will have two things. A sufficient number of people who have got the infection and recovered and have some kind of immunity and people who will get the vaccine”, stated Professor Guleria, adding, “Together, they should break the chain of transmission of the virus”.
