Apr 12, 2021 07:40 IST | By Editorji News Desk

The Covid-19 inoculation drive is set to resume in Mumbai at 62 of the 72 private hospitals from Monday. The BMC has reopened these vaccination centres after recieving an additional supply of vaccines.

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation on Saturday received 99,000 doses of Covishield vaccine after it complained of a shortage amid rising cases of COVID-19 in Mumbai. The municipal body said the vaccines will be distributed to the civic and government-run vaccine centres for vaccination.

Meanwhile, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray is set to re-ask Prime Minister Narendra Modi for an increase in the supply of vaccines to Maharashtra. He had earlier written a letter to the PM, asking for an increase in the supply of the jabs.

Union minister Prakash Javadekar on Saturday said Maharashtra has received 1.10 crore doses of Covid-19 vaccines so far.
