In New Delhi, Health Minister Satyendar Jain on Sunday sought to allay concerns over “fewer” Covid tests being conducted in the national capital, saying the city is conducting three times more diagnostic tests than the number recommended by the ICMR. All those who need to undergo testing are being tested, he said.

In Rajasthan, Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot said  that vaccination is an important tool of defence in struggle against Corona and added that COVID-19 vaccination in all categories in Rajasthan is higher than the national average. He said so far 94 per cent of people above the age of 18 have been given first dose of the vaccine.

“Covid vaccination drive has completed one year. The percentage of Covid vaccination in all categories in the state is higher than the national average. So far, 94 per cent of people above the age of 18 have been given the first dose of the vaccine,” Gehlot said in a tweet.
