MUMBAI: Noting that the Center had earlier supplied 35,000 doses of remedial injections to Maharashtra, state health minister Rajesh Top said on Thursday that the state has now allocated 226,000 injections for the next ten days as against the daily requirement of 50,000 doses. .
I’m talking Years “Currently we need about 50,000 doses per day. Earlier, the center used to give us about 35,000 doses per day. Now we have only been given 266,000 injections by the center for the next ten days.” “We already have a shortage of about 25,000 daily doses and looking at today’s allocation we are now less short than vaccines.”
“It is very important for the Center to address the deficit we are currently facing. Remediation is not the last resort to treat this disease but at the same time serious patients still need it,” he said.
He added, “Therefore, I humbly appeal to the Government of India to give more injections to the state. A letter will be written to them today. I will personally speak to them. The Chief Minister will also raise this issue. With the Center.”
