Coronavirus: 1,778 people in the age group of 30-44 were vaccinated in Mumbai on the first day of the special vaccination campaign
On the first day of the Special Vaccination Campaign, a total of 1,778 people in the age group of 30-44 were vaccinated against Kovid-19 in Mumbai on Saturday. The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation said in a release that these people were vaccinated in 10 centers with doses supplied by the Maharashtra government. Dr. Archana Patil, Director, Maharashtra Health Services said that the statewide data of people in this category who have been vaccinated during the day would be available by Sunday. Officials said the state government is focusing on immunization in the age group of 30-44 as most of the professionals and earning members of the family belong to this age group.
At the same time, Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar appealed to the people not to dilute their defense measures against Kovid-19 in view of the possible third wave of the corona virus epidemic. Pawar told the people that they should refrain from visiting tourist places in the present scenario, even though restrictions have been relaxed. He said people need to take the warnings about the third wave seriously.
'If people continue to move out of the district then...'
Pawar was talking to reporters after holding a meeting with officials to review the situation of coronavirus in Pune district. He also said that if people continue to move out of the district for the purpose of tourism, the administration will have no other option but to impose a 15-day quarantine system on such people after their return home.
Malls allowed to reopen with 50 percent capacity
In Nashik district, which comes under the second level category of the Maharashtra government's five-tier 'Unlock' scheme, the local administration has given some relaxation in restrictions. The administration has decided to allow reopening of malls with 50 per cent capacity on working days from June 21. However, considering the past experiences of overcrowding and several other facts, the administration has decided to continue with the third level of restrictions. Malls will be allowed to open from 7 am to 4 pm from Monday to Friday.
