COVID-19 vaccine: Over 70 million doses administered in India

Odisha Running Out Of Covishield Vaccine Stock

Noting that San Diego County is among the leading counties statewide in vaccine doses administered per person, Fletcher said surpassing 1 million people shows that local officials have successfully combated vaccine skepticism.

He said that all samples are being sent to Delhi to test the new variants of Covid-19.

With the Centre approving vaccination of all citizens above 45 years across the country from April 1, the state government last month had sought an adequate supply of COVID-19 vaccine at the earliest for uninterrupted vaccination drive.

As of early Monday, 2,247 people were hospitalized with COVID-19 in Pennsylvania, including 432 in intensive care. "We've seen that in other jurisdictions and we expect to see it here", he said.

Both days were already record-breaking, though these new numbers obviously are combined, this results in a four-day case count of 4,040 new cases, for a total of 104,061 cases in B.C.to date.

Broken down by specific health region, the new infections equate to 579 new cases of COVID-19 in the Vancouver Coastal Health region, 986 new cases in the Fraser Health region, 100 in the Island Health region, 129 in the Interior Health region, and 95 in the Northern Health region.

Prince Hamzah said in a video recording he was under house arrest and had been told to stay at home and not contact anyone. The exercise did not appear to be related to the weekend incidents because such drills are planned well in advance.

On Tuesday morning, the province's online vaccine registration portal is set to go live. This includes 2,771 cases of the B.1.1.7 (U.K.) variant, 51 cases of the B.1.351 (South Africa) variant and 737 cases of the P.1 (Brazil) variant.

Challenged Monday about why the province isn't releasing more data on where the variants are spreading, Dix declined to provide specifics. "It's indoor spaces - indoor events, in some cases ... indoor spread within households", he said.

In Douglas County, 8,776 out of the 8,971 cases are inactive or beyond the infectious period, according to Lawrence-Douglas County Public Health, meaning 195 cases are active.

As of Monday morning, Butler Memorial Hospital was treating 18 patients for the coronavirus, with five COVID patients in the ICU.

On Sunday, Dix defended the measures that B.C. has put in place to control the spread of the disease, describing them as very strict and saying it's up to everyone to follow the rules. People can also book through a Service BC location.

Health officials also urged British Columbians to stay home for the holiday weekend, but mayors in some tourist destinations said over the weekend that they were noticing an influx of visitors.
