Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday urged residents not to queue up outside Covid-19 vaccination centres in the national Capital on Saturday when the third phase of the inoculation drive is scheduled to start. “As soon as the vaccines come, we will make proper announcements. Only then people with appointments can start coming to the centres.”

Karnataka Health Minister K Sudhakar said that people in the 18-44 age group won’t get vaccinated from Saturday as the state did not have sufficient stock.

Meanwhile, India on Friday registered 3,86,452 coronavirus cases, pushing the overall count of infections to 1,87,62,976 since the pandemic first broke out in India in January 2020.

With 3,498 deaths, the toll climbed to 2,08,330. There are 31,70,228 active cases and the recovery tally stood at 1,53,84,418.
