As the stock of unused Covid-19 vaccines with the states increases, the clock is ticking for the government to meet the deadline of inoculating all adults by next month. Even after 300 days since the beginning of its mega vaccination drive, India managed to give the first dose to nearly 80 per cent of its population, while not even 40 per cent of the eligible population has been fully vaccinated.

The numbers, as promising as they may appear on paper, may not spell a secure future for India with Europe and Central Asia in point — both are witnessing a fresh wave of coronavirus as cases increase at a rapid rate. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), every single country in Europe and Central Asia is facing a real threat of Covid-19 resurgence, or already fighting it.

The WHO cited insufficient vaccination coverage and relaxation of public health and social measures as the reason behind this. While the cases in India are not rising, the other two conditions are valid.
