At a time when Covid cases are rising in the country, about 10 states face dwindling vaccine stocks.
While Maharashtra on Wednesday witnessed the vaccination drive stopping in Gondia district — it was left with just 20 doses — or slowing down in Yavatmal, Akola, Buldhana and Washim, nine other states — Odisha, Andhra Pradesh, Punjab, Rajasthan, UP, Uttarakhand, Chhattisgarh, Bihar and West Bengal — have stocks that would last them 3-4 days. This has hit plans to ramp up vaccination.
Many of these states expect doses to arrive soon and have been pushing the Centre for replenishments.
