India has been hit by the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic that has led to an unprecedented spike in daily cases, forcing most of the states and union territories (UTs) to impose lockdowns and night curfews again to break the chain of the transmission of the virus.

The second wave of the pandemic has also led to an acute shortage of vaccines in the country. However, the Union Health Ministry has said that India will have 216 crore vaccine doses by the year-end that will be sufficient to inoculate all citizens in the country.

It has also invited private firms to produce Bharat Biotech's Covaxin to meet the shortage amid the ongoing third phase of the vaccination drive that aims to inoculate those in the age group of 18 to 44 years.
