The Indian Council of Medical Research said the cumulative count of samples tested so far stood at 57,68,03,867 which included 14,09,825 samples checked on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, on Tuesday, the cumulative COVID-19 vaccine doses administered in the country crossed 92 crore, the Union Health Ministry said. 

Over 59 lakh vaccine doses have been administered on Tuesday and the tally is expected to increase with the compilation of the final reports by late in the night, it said. 

Meanwhile, the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) has warned that revenge tourism will trigger a third wave of Covid-19 if hill stations and tourist destinations don’t strictly enforce Covid protocol.
