Delhi Health Minister Satyendra Jain said on Thursday that many new cases of corona virus are from the youth. The infection rate in Delhi has crossed 6%. This time the corona is spreading quite rapidly, but deaths are few. Vaccination campaign is going well in Delhi. We currently have four to five days stock of vaccine. We have demanded more vaccine from the central government, hopefully we will get it soon.
Jain said that Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had written to the Center that vaccination should be opened to all. Along with this we have made 2 more requests that vaccination should be allowed for all adults. Secondly, it should be allowed for vaccination not only in hospitals and health centers, but also in camp settings.
We must fight COVID together. The Center alleged that vaccination of health workers in Delhi was low. We can also say that vaccination was less in central government hospitals. This is not a problem, the issue is that we will soon get more and more people vaccinated.
