According to state Health Minister Rajesh Tope, Maharashtra need at least three crore vaccine doses per month to inoculate the whole eligible population against coronavirus as soon as possible.
According to Maharashtra Health Minister Rajesh Tope, the state’s ability is to vaccinate 15 lakh people each day, but due to a “shortage of vaccine dosages,” only two to three lakh people are getting inoculated per day.
“We received seven lakh vaccine doses three days ago. By the end of the day, the stock will be depleted (July 12). So far, we’ve received around 3.60 crore vaccine doses, with about 25 lakh doses purchased directly by the state government “According to the minister.
According to official figures, a total of 3,65,25,990 vaccination doses were provided in the state through Sunday.
Mr Tope, when asked about the lack of vaccine doses in the state, stated, “We’re working at a reduced capacity. It’s a (situation) when you’re actually living hand to mouth.”
According to the state health department, Maharashtra recorded 8,535 new cases of coronavirus on Sunday, bringing the total number of infections to 61,57,799 and the death toll to 1,25,878, according to the state health department.
Central government and state government are pressurized to take vaccine in the view of third wave of Covid.
