Mumbai/IBNS: Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli took the first dose of anti-Covid-19 vaccine on Monday, as the country is grappling with the surge in infections.

Kohli took to Instagram to share a story where he was seen taking a jab.

He wrote on the story, "Vaccinate as soon as you can please. Stay safe."

Though the Indian skipper is urging people to get vaccinated, there is a massive shortage of vaccines in the country.

Kohli and his actor wife Anushka Sharma, days ago, started a campaign to raise funds for Covid-19 relief.

India recorded  3,66,161 new Covid-19 cases in the past 24 hours, a slight dip in the daily count after for the past few days over 4 lakh daily cases were recorded, revealed the Ministry of Health released data on Monday.

During the same period, 3,754  deaths have been reported, as per Ministry of Health released data.
