NEW DELHI, July 27 (Xinhua) -- Precautionary measures and social distancing measures have been implemented at schools in Agartala, the capital city of India's northeastern state of Tripura.

India's federal health minister Mansukh Mandaviya on Tuesday said the government is likely to start vaccinating children against COVID-19 by next month, local media reports said.

Experts said it would be a giant step in breaking the chain of transmission of COVID-19 infection and would help a lot in the reopening of schools across the country amid warnings of a possible third wave of the pandemic.

India's COVID-19 tally rose to 31,440,951 on Tuesday as 29,689 new cases were registered during the past 24 hours across the country, showed the federal health ministry's latest data.
