The toll rose by 1,422 to 3,88,135.

India reported 53,256 new coronavirus cases on Monday, taking its overall count of infections since the pandemic broke out in January 2020 to 2,99,35,221. This is India’s lowest daily rise in cases in 88 days. The country’s toll rises by 1,422 to 3,88,135.

Everyone above the age of 18 is eligible for free vaccination from Monday. On June 7, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had announced that the Centre will procure 75% of the jabs manufactured by vaccine makers and provide them to states free of cost.

However, private hospitals will continue to buy 25% of the total vaccine stock. This means some beneficiaries will have to pay for their vaccines if they choose to get inoculated at non-government medical facilities.

Globally, the coronavirus disease has infected over 17.84 crore people and killed more than 38.64 lakh since the pandemic broke out in December 2019, according to Johns Hopkins University.
