In the past 24 hours, India has reported a total of 379,257 confirmed cases of new coronary heart disease and 3,645 deaths, once again setting a new record since the outbreak of the epidemic in the country. India plans to make the vaccination voluntary for all people over 18 years of age from May 1, but just when people are giving up waiting and making appointments for vaccination, many places are facing shortage of vaccine, so it is difficult to start the vaccination program next month as scheduled. Under the threat of the mutated virus, several countries have issued travel bans and increased material assistance to India, which has quietly reversed its 16-year policy of not accepting disaster donations from other countries.
