A "frail" person who had both coronavirus vaccines was hospitalised with the indian variant in Bolton, the health secretary says, APA reports citing BBC.

Five people who had had one Covid jab were also hospitalised in Bolton with the Indian variant, he told Andrew Marr.

He says he is not aware of anyone who has died after having both vaccines and catching the Indian variant.

"All this demonstrates that the best thing that we can do is get the vaccinations out including those second jabs and in the areas where are seeing infections rise we are throwing testing at it," he says.
