A central government official says that there is no option other than lockdown to prevent infection in Kerala.

Where are we now on the vaccination front?
For the first time on Friday, 10 million doses of anti-Covid-19 vaccine were administered across the country. However, this trend could not be sustained, while the target of immunization of the entire adult population of the country by the end of the year would be possible only if the pace of 10 million doses per day is achieved at the earliest. August has been the best month from the point of view of vaccination when a total of 57 lakh, 40 thousand doses were administered. If this monthly average of vaccination remains the same, it will take seven months to protect the entire adult population from Covid.
