COVID death toll passes three million as India cases surge

COVID-19 death toll nears 3 million as India cases surge

Police in Ontario now have new authority to question people who are leaving their home.

In Brazil, where almost 3,000 people are dying every day in one-fourth of the world's deaths in recent weeks, the crisis has been described by a WHO official as a "hell of anger".

The surge of cases comes as India recorded 234,692 new cases on Saturday morning with the Chief Minister of the national capital, New Delhi, reporting 24,000 new cases in the city within the past 24 hours.

The CDC says on its website that Covid-19 shots are effective at preventing illness, and explains why precautions are still necessary for those who have been fully vaccinated.

CNN cited the CDC, which said, "Vaccine breakthrough infections were reported among all people of all ages eligible for vaccination".

"It is also respectfully submitted that the marginalised sections of the population including daily wagers, labourers as well as persons falling below poverty line also form a large part of the population falling within the age group of 18 years and above", the plea contended.

The CDC added that 65% of the breakthrough cases were female and 29% of the infections were asymptomatic, stating that it "is monitoring reported cases for clustering by patient demographics, geographic location, time since vaccination, vaccine type or lot number, and SARS-CoV-2 lineage", the news outlet cited.

The CDC tells News 5 it now has a database for states to contribute information about breakthrough cases as investigators work to see if any of these cases have common factors or demographics that can be addressed.

On Wednesday, Denmark permanently stopped the usage of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine.

Recommendations are already different for people who have been fully vaccinated.
