NEW DELHI : Even as India's first dose coverage of covid-19 vaccine stands at 82% and second dose coverage reached 43%, north-eastern states’ progress remains government’s concern.

Union Minister of Health and Family Welfare Mansukh Mandaviya on Monday virtually interacted with Health Secretaries and senior officials of the Health Department from Manipur, Meghalaya, Nagaland and Puducherry as these States/UT have been reporting low covid-19 vaccination coverage.

While India's first dose coverage is at 82% as on Monday except for the UT of Puducherry, coverage of other states remained below 60%.
