"The students/employees coming from Kerala shall be subject to institutional quarantine of five days. The arrangements for the quarantine for students will be done by the administrators/principals of educational institutions," an order issued by the state administration late on Sunday said.

The Telangana government will launch a special drive to administer COVID-19 vaccines to 3 lakh people daily in an effort to cover 1.38 crore people who have still not taken a single dose.

Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao has directed senior officials of the medical and health department to carry out the special drive.

He said since the production of COVID vaccine in the country has increased qualitatively, there is a possibility of the state getting its required supply.

The Chief Minister said though the pandemic is in total control in the state, the special drive of the vaccination should be taken up so that people do not suffer in the future due to COVID-19.
