The district wise fatalities are Imphal West (4), Imphal East (5), Thoubal (3), Bishnupur (5), Ukhrul (1), Jiribam (1) and Chandel (1).The cumulative number of deaths has reached 1541.Four out of Friday's 20 victims had their first dose of vaccine while six persons did not have any comorbid conditions.
