Worldwide coronavirus cases crossed 6.58 crore, according to the Johns Hopkins University. The death toll rose to 15.18 lakh. More than 4.23 crore people have recovered so far.

Haryana Home Minister and state health minister Anil Vij, 67 years, tested positive for COVID-19.  He participated in the phase 3 trials of Bharat Bharat Biotech’s Covaxin Vaccine.

Britain on Wednesday became the first western country to approve a vaccine, from Pfizer-BioNTech, for general use, piling pressure on other countries to follow suit swiftly.

World Health Organization Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus on Friday noted that the positive results from several vaccine trials mean the world “can begin to dream about the end of the pandemic”, according to AP. However, he cautioned rich countries from not trampling poor nations and added that “the path ahead remains treacherous”. He too appreciated the initiative taken by Barack Obama, George W Bush, Bill Clinton and Joe Biden to volunteer to get an approved vaccine on camera.
