    Central Government Advises Employees Who Are 45 And Above To Get Vaccine



    New Delhi:

    The centre has asked its employees aged 45 and above to get vaccinated against the coronavirus to stem the massive growth in daily Covid figures across the country.

    “All Central Government employees of the age of 45 years and above are advised to get themselves vaccinated, so as to effectively contain the spread of COVID-19,” the government said in a statement.

    The employees are further advised to continue following all anti-Covid protocols, even after getting vaccinated, it added.

    India, the second worst-hit country in the world, crossed over one lakh daily coronavirus cases for the first time, on Monday. Today, it reported 96,982 cases and 442 deaths.

    Experts say the country is facing a second wave of infections brought on by mutant Covid variants and people’s reluctance in following norms like wearing masks and maintaining social distance.

    Maharashtra, the worst-hit state in the country, has been reported close to 50,000 Covid cases every day. On Tuesday, it reported 47,288 new coronavirus cases.

    The centre this month expanded the vaccine net, making all people above 45 eligible for vaccinations.
