The daily figure in the city was between 8,000 and 10,000, but the number has come down drastically to 2500. The situation of the villagers is worse. Earlier there were between 6,000 and 8,000 vaccinations daily, now the figure has reduced. On Monday, only 88 people have vaccinated in rural areas.

The reason is being told that the number has come down after the State Government has suspended the vaccination of 18+ age group. The second is that the second dose of Covishield is now to be applied between 12 and 16 weeks, to companionate vaccines shortage.
