West Bengal to start 3rd phase of vaccination from 5th May

West Bengal will start the third phase of vaccination from fifth of May. The Chief Minister of the state Mamata Banerjee told reporters that due to ongoing Assembly Elections, there are some problems regarding the infrastructure. The Union Government has already announced the policy to vaccinate any person above the age of 18 years from first of May.

Ms. Banerjee held an administrative review meeting through video conferencing from Malda today to assess the overall COVID situation in the state. She said the state has already vaccinated 93 lakhs and asked the centre to supply another one crore doses of vaccines immediately. The state has also created a fund of 100 crores for running the vaccination programme. Admitting the scarcity of oxygen in the state, CM Banerjee stated that any attempt for hoarding or black marketing of oxygen cylinders will be dealt strictly.

She said that the government is not thinking about imposing a lockdown and asked people to follow COVID guidelines and use masks to keep themselves safe. She also advised covid patients with mild symptoms to stay isolated at home or in safe houses and instructed the hospitals to admit serious patients to deal with the rush of COVID infected patients.
