Nirmal Bang Report

In the first fortnight of April 2021, economic activity began to feel the pinch of the second wave of Covid-19 even though the impact was marginal.

The number of active Covid-19 cases rose by 166.4% from the previous fortnight while the number of deaths was up by 195%, both witnessing the sharpest increase since April 2020.

Meanwhile, the pace of vaccination is picking up, but it is yet to reach critical mass, with less than 1.5% of the population fully vaccinated.

As of April 19, 2021, only ~16.48 million people were fully vaccinated. But, a total of ~123.85 million people have received at least one dose of the vaccine.
