Amid an alarming rise in Covid-19 cases and hit by vaccine scarcity, Andhra has asked the Centre to release 1 crore doses of Covid-19 vaccine immediately. A health official has said only 3.7 lakh doses are available while its consumption per day is 1.3 lakh doses. The official further said that the government fears Andhra Pradesh could run out of vaccine by Thursday. Nellore and West Godavari districts have run out of vaccine, he informed. Calls for making vaccines available for all adults above 18 years have grown over the past few weeks after a record surge in Covid-19 cases in the country.
