Over 35.5 million tests have been carried out to date as part of the UAE's massive screening campaign.

India reported 46,951 new Covid-19 cases, 21,180 recoveries and 212 deaths in the last 24 hours, as per the Union Health Ministry on Monday.

The surge in cases is claimed to be the highest daily rise of 2021.

However, as a sign of relief, the total Covid vaccination count has touched more than 4.5 crores (4,50,65,998), as per the Union Ministry on Monday until 8am.

Meanwhile, Germany is set to extend a lockdown to contain the Covid-19 pandemic into its fifth month, according to a draft proposal, after infection rates exceeded the level at which authorities say hospitals will be overstretched.

The recommendation is contained in a draft, seen by Reuters, prepared by Chancellor Angela Merkel’s office ahead of Monday’s videoconference of regional and national leaders to decide on the next round of measures to deal with the pandemic.
