New Delhi, May 12
India today witnessed a record Covid-19 deaths at 4,205 with daily cases settling below 4 lakh for the fourth day in a row and active cases declining for the second straight day to 37,04,099. Active cases now make up 15.87 per cent of all infections with a decline of 11,122 cases in the active caseload.
Vaccine shortages continued to trouble states with over 100 vaccination centres declared closed in the national capital which ran out of Covaxin supplies. Delhi Deputy CM Manish Sisodia said close to 125 centres were being shut as Bharat Biotech had told the government it could not provide additional Covaxin supplies.
“The Covaxin manufacturer has in a letter said it cannot provide us vaccines due to unavailability, under instruction of government officials. It means the Centre is controlling vaccine supply,” Sisodia said a day after he spoke of inviting a global tender to import Covid vaccines.
This came on a day when sources in the Health Ministry said the Serum Institute had committed to boost monthly production of the vaccine by August.
