New Delhi: India continues to battle the insurmountable battle against the deadly coronavirus as it registered more than 70,000 new cases and 991 deaths on Tuesday. The death toll came under just 1,000 figures for three days in a row. The total number of infections in the country have crossed six million and the current death toll stands at 104,591. India has been testing more than one million samples per day and as the experts put it out since the pandemic began in March, wide-spread testing and an effective vaccine are key factors to defeat the coronavirus. While the testing remains disproportionate to the population with more than 1.3 billion people living in India, the consistent testing shows promise of the government’s plans to fight the coronavirus and an increase in testing will only provide more data to doctors and experts on how to deal with the virus.

The world’s largest vaccine manufacturer Serum Institute of India is in the process of making a covid vaccine in conjunction with Oxford University in the United Kingdom and the British pharma company, AstraZeneca. If the vaccine is approved to use on the populace, older people and people with lesser immunities along with workers in health sector are poised to get the initial doses. It is still to be seen how the Indian government will manage to provide the vaccine doses to every Indian without any flaws but any promising signs from the ongoing vaccine manufacture will send the government to high gear and form a cohesive plan on how to save our country from the coronavirus.
