Maharashtra Health Minister Rajesh Tope’s statement on the vaccine shortage crisis
Maharashtra is one of the three-four states to start vaccination for people between 18 and 44 years of age from 1 May. So far, 1 crore 73 lakh people have been vaccinated in Maharashtra. But due to lack of vaccine, this campaign is slowed down again and again, many vaccination centers sometimes have to be closed. The Maharashtra government has thought of two ways to deal with this deficiency.
One is that in the event of reduced availability of the vaccine, people between the ages of 18 to 44 years should be divided into different classes and first the people between the age of 35 to 44 years should be given priority, so that a large crowd is gathered Get rid of the problem. Second, an effort should be made to bring the Russian Sputnik vaccine to Maharashtra as quickly as possible and to end the crisis of vaccine shortage.
Speaking on the crisis of vaccine deficiency, Health Minister Rajesh Tope (Maharashtra Health Minister Rajesh Tope) from Maharashtra told today (May 7, Friday) in a conversation with the media that till now 2 lakh 15 thousand 274 people aged 18 to 44 years have been vaccinated. Has been given So far, both vaccines have been given to 28 lakh 66 thousand people in Maharashtra. But at present, only a few thousand vaccines remain in Maharashtra. To overcome this problem of vaccine, on the one hand there is an appeal from the Center to supply more vaccines in the state, on the other hand, efforts are on to bring Russia’s Sputnik V Vaccine to Maharashtra. . For this, the government of Maharashtra is trying to get the vaccine by negotiating with the Russian Direct Investment Fund.
If the vaccine is not received on time, the effect of the first dose will also be reduced.
Rajesh Tope said that for those above 45 years of age, 9 lakh vaccines were received two days ago. Out of these, 8 lakh vaccines have been exhausted. Now only a few thousand vaccines are left. The second dose of about four lakh people remains. Too much difficulties are being created due to non-supply of covaxine. If the vaccine is not available on time, the effect of the first dose will also be reduced.
53 metric tons of oxygen is being made
Speaking further on the availability of oxygen in the state, Rajesh Tope said that Maharashtra currently needs 1700 tonnes of oxygen. Even if 20 liters of oxygen is given to a patient, 1600 tons of oxygen is spent only in patients. Apart from this, oxygen is also needed to make many medicines. The state government has prepared 38 plants for producing oxygen from the air, out of which 53 tons of oxygen is being made. But this is not enough, therefore, the central government should help us to overcome the crisis of lack of oxygen.
Maharashtra adopts Kerala’s vaccine model
In view of the vaccine crisis in Maharashtra, the Kerala vaccine model may prove to be a good alternative. Kerala has been able to provide vaccines to more population than the vaccine received from the central government. PM Modi has also become convinced of this vaccine model of Kerala. On the one hand, Maharashtra is struggling with the shortage of vaccine, on the other hand, Kerala has set an example by stopping the waste of vaccine. Kerala has succeeded in achieving the Zero Vestage Vaccine with the help of skilled health workers and public.
