CoWin Aarogya Setu crash minutes after Covid vaccine registration opens for all adults in India

The Ministry also denied reports suggesting that the Co-WIN platform was unresponsive/overshooting the server capacity and was not able to respond to the unprecedented number of registrations taking place. We have seen a traffic of 55,000 hits per second.

The registration window opened at 4 pm for all people above the age of 18 years.

People waiting to register for COVID vaccine have taken to microblogging site Twitter to complain about the issue they are facing in the registration process.

"We do have to remember that sadly, every week in Australia 3000 people die of all sorts of causes", Professor Skerritt said. That said, despite having to jump through many hoops, many people did indeed manage to register, and the government has numbers to back that.

At 4.35 pm, Aarogya Setu, the central government's contact-tracing app to contain coronavirus, said the CoWin portal was working. "Registration is happening on cowin.gov.in".

"Continuing COVID-19 restrictions on individuals, with no end in sight, including long-term use of face coverings and withdrawal from social and recreational gatherings, pose a risk of adverse and unintended consequences; and due to COVID-19 wide-spread vaccine availability, fully vaccinated individuals should no longer be advised to wear face coverings or avoid social and recreational gatherings except in limited circumstances", Rivkees said in his statement. Meanwhile, the Centre has announced to commence Phase 3 of vaccination from May 1, where all above 18 years of age can get vaccinated.

"An increased demand is expected once the vaccination is opened for all".

"Let's allow the medical facts to be established and let's make a decision on those facts", Scott Morrison said.

While those aged 18 to 44 years will be eligible to receive vaccination on payment from any of the private Covid vaccination centres (CVCs), they shall also be eligible to receive a jab from a government CVC in a state or a Union Territory that decides to lower the minimum cut-off age for eligibility.
