“Kohima reported one Superpsreader event as 132 cases were reported from the past week. The outbreak from a training Institute in Kohima sends a clear message that such events can happen anywhere when necessary conditions are met,” Health department stated.

No fresh vax registrations of HCWs, FLWs
Centre Saturday directed the states and UTs that no fresh registrations of healthcare and frontline workers will be allowed since some ineligible beneficiaries were getting their names enlisted for vaccination against COVID-19, under this category, in violation of rules.
Union Health Secretary Rajesh Bhushan, in a letter, said registration of persons aged 45 years and above will continue to be permitted on Co-WIN portal, and asked the states to ensure universal vaccination of already registered healthcare workers (HCWs) and frontline workers (FLWs) at the earliest. Bhushan said all efforts have been made in close collaboration with states and UTs to saturate vaccination of HCWs and FLWs.
While tracking the progress, timeline for completing vaccination of all HCWs and FLWs with first dose of COVID-19 vaccine has been extended multiple times and was finally fixed at February 25 for HCWs and March 6 for FLWs, he stated. “…it has been decided that no fresh registrations in categories of HCWs and FLWs will be allowed with immediate effect,” he said in the letter.
