India took only six days to administer one million COVID-19 vaccine doses, a count which is higher than that of countries like the United States and the United Kingdom, the Union Health Ministry said on Sunday as the number of beneficiaries who have received the anti-coronavirus shots inched close to 16 lakh.
In a span of 24 hours, close to 2 lakh (1,91,609) people were vaccinated across 3,512 sessions.
