India recorded 9,419 new Covid cases on Thursday -- a daily spike that's 11.6 per cent higher than the previous day. 

This took the active caseload to 94,742. At least 159 deaths were also recorded in the day.

Meanwhile, a World Health Organization official said the Omicron variant does not appear to cause more severe disease than previous Covid variants, and is "highly unlikely" to fully dodge vaccine protections.

A total of 129.54 crore vaccine doses have been administered so far under the Nationwide Vaccination Drive.
