`India will continue to export Covid-19 vaccines to fulfill its commitment to COVAX. The excess vaccine supply will be used to fulfill our commitment to the world in the collective fight against Covid-19

Minister Mandaviya said India will produce 300 million doses of vaccine in October and one billion doses in the last three months of the year.

However, India had to stop exporting Covid-19 vaccines because the outbreak pushed the South Asian country’s health care system to the brink and skyrocketed demand for this item.

The Covid-19 vaccination campaign in India began in January, but initially took place slowly due to scarcity and public hesitation.

India is the second largest epidemic region in the world, recording 33,502,744 infections and 445,416 deaths, an increase of 24,925 and 251 cases in the past 24 hours.

The world has recorded 229,606,517 nCoV infections and 4,706,513 deaths, an increase of 363,391 and 5,174 respectively, while 204,563,104 people have recovered, according to real-time statistics site Worldometers.

Greece reported 632,908 cases and 14,505 deaths, an increase of 2,124 and 39 cases in the past 24 hours.

Experts from the Greek Ministry of Health approved booster vaccinations for doctors and medical staff next week, and recommended booster vaccinations using messenger RNA (mRNA) technology for vulnerable groups.

Greece has administered more than 11.9 million vaccine shots, of which 56.7% of the country’s population has received the full course.

New Zealand recorded 4,082 cases of infection, an increase of 22 cases in the past 24 hours, of which 27 deaths.

New Zealand decided to relax some restrictions in the largest city of Auckland because the country’s officials believe there are no more community infections related to the Delta variant.

Auckland City allows funerals and weddings with up to 10 attendees, businesses can offer contactless collection or delivery.

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said people are still not allowed to visit friends, neighbors or let children play together.

New Zealand’s strict blockades and border closures helped the island nation cope well with Covid-19, but Prime Minister Ardern’s government was criticized for being slow in rolling out vaccinations.

Thailand reported an additional 12,709 cases and 106 deaths, totaling 1,489,186 and 15,469 respectively.

Thai health officials said doctors in this country have started giving booster shots under the skin instead of injecting into the muscle.

Chalermpong Sukonthaphon, director of Vachira Hospital in Phuket, said the facility has been using the subcutaneous injection method since September 17 because testing showed it triggered an immune response similar to the conventional method.

Thailand switched to new Covid-19 vaccination methods due to supply problems despite being one of the countries producing the AstraZeneca vaccine.

Thai health officials decided to apply the first vaccination course with the Sinovac vaccine and the haiu vaccination course with the AstraZeneca product, a course that has not been used anywhere.
