Pune shuts 109 vaccination centres amid COVID vaccine shortage
The second wave of Corona virus has become uncontrollable in the country. More than 1.25 million corona patients have been found for the second consecutive day on Thursday. Amidst the outbreak of the epidemic, many states are struggling with a shortage of medicines and oxygen to save Corona patients.
Somewhere there is a shortage of beds in hospitals, then there are less ventilators. Vaccination campaigns have come to a standstill due to the depletion of vaccine stocks in many states. Apart from this, ‘Vaccine Politics’ is going on between the Central Government and the State Governments. In such a situation, the question is, how will the country win the fight against Corona after struggling with the lack of medical equipment?
The confrontation between the central government and the Uddhav government has increased after the Maharashtra government complained that the vaccine stock was exhausted. Maharashtra Health Minister Rajesh Tope has demanded 16 million vaccines every month from the center. Every day 6 lakh people are being vaccinated in the state, so we need 40 lakh vaccines every week.
Meanwhile, vaccination has been stopped due to vaccine deficiency in Panvel, Satara, Maharashtra. At the same time, 109 vaccination centers have been closed due to a lack of vaccines in Pune. Only one day’s stock is left in Maharashtra’s Kolhapur, Navi Mumbai, and Washi.
