With the country reporting a daily surge in coronavirus cases over the last few days, the Centre has repeatedly urged people to take precautions and practice social distancing. The government has also said that it is regularly coordinating with states and union territories (UTs) to by sending central teams of experts to areas witnessing increase in caseload and hand-holding of COVID hospitals in states through the tele-consultation programme led by AIIMS, New Delhi.

"These combined efforts have resulted in Case Fatality Rate being managed at low levels. It is 2.41 per cent, as on date, and steadily declining," the government said on Thursday, as reported by news agency PTI.

Meanwhile, the World Health Organisation (WHO) has said that it doesn't expect that a COVID-19 vaccine will be available until 2021, adding that it is working to ensure fair vaccine distribution, but in the meantime it is key to suppress the virus's spread.

"Realistically it is going to be the first part of next year before we start seeing people getting vaccinated," Reuters quoted Mike Ryan, head of WHO's emergencies programme, as saying.
