New Delhi: India has become the fastest country in the world to vaccinate 6 million people, the Union Health Ministry said today, adding that the feat was achieved in just 24 days.

The country that has vaccinated the most number of people is the United States, followed by the United Kingdom, with 36.82 million and 11.48 million, respectively, having received a vaccine.

“India has scaled another global peak in its fight against Covid-19. India has become the third topmost country in the world in terms of the number of COVID19 vaccine doses administered. Only the United States and the United Kingdom remain ahead of India,” the Union health ministry said in a statement on Sunday.

According to the health ministry, states in India have vaccinated more than 200,000 beneficiaries each. Uttar Pradesh, the country’s most populous state, alone accounts for 673,542 of all vaccinations so far, followed by Maharashtra with 473,000 and Rajasthan with 459,000.

So far, India has recorded 1,08,14,304 confirmed COVID-19 cases, including 1,54,918 deaths. A total of 1,05,10,796 people have recuperated from COVID-19 so far.

There are 1,48,590 active cases in the country as of date, which comprises 1.37 percent of the total caseload, the data stated.

India’s recovery rate continues to rise and now stands at 97.16 percent. Globally, over 10.5 crore people have been infected by the coronavirus and 22.96 lakh have died so far.

India, along with many countries, has granted emergency use authorization for COVID-19 vaccines and has started the process of vaccinating healthcare workers and high-risk groups.

The South Asian country’s regulator has granted restricted emergency use approval for two vaccines — Covishield and Covaxin. Nearly 53 lakh people have been so far given their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine in India.
