The second wave of COVID-19 has severely impacted household incomes and jobs as local lockdowns remain imposed in most states. The impact of these local restrictions has been felt by people working in the informal sector, according to fresh data released by the Centre for Monitoring Indian Economy (CMIE). In an exclusive interview with India Today, Centre for Monitoring Indian Economy (CMIE) Chief Mahesh Vyas said that India had lost more than 22 million jobs in the months of April and May due to the lockdown. Stating that the main reason for the job losses is 'mainly the second wave' of COVID-19 infections, Vyas said as the economy opens up, part of the problem will be solved but not entirely. He added that people who lose jobs find it hard to get employment, specifying that while the informal sector jobs come back quickly, the formal sector and better quality job opportunities take up to a year to come back.

Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Tamil Nadu are among the states lying towards the bottom of the COVID-19 vaccination table in terms of population coverage. Bihar has partially vaccinated 83,78,724 (nearly 8 per cent) people, along with 17,63,503 (1.69 per cent) people administered both doses. The locals based in rural areas of the state are resisting the idea of vaccination stating it causes fever and death. The people believe that the Indian government has exported all the good vaccines to other countries and are administering Indians with faulty jabs, causing illness among the vaccinated lot. People based in towns are however optimistic about the vaccination drive and believe that it can solve the problem of rising COVID numbers in India.
