INDIA: Nine months into the inoculation drive, India celebrated the milestone of administering one billion COVID-19 vaccine doses on Thursday, with the government promoting the achievement in song and video even as a recent drop in inoculations worries healthcare providers.

Since January, India’s immunisation campaign has covered three-quarters of its 944 million adults with at least one dose but only 31 per cent with two. The government wants all adults to get vaccinated this year.
