Dimapur, April 23: Opposition NPF has questioned how the Government of Nagaland is preparing to tackle the second wave of Covid-19 in the wake of vaccine shortage in the State. It also asked the Government what alternative arrangement it is making for the people who have been denied their dose due to the shortage of vaccine.
“The second wave of super spreader of Covid-19 is entering our doorstep, the Nagaland Government should be prepared with the vaccine for its eligible citizens but instead, it appears that the vaccine has run out of stock,” lamented a statement issued by the NPF press bureau.
Stating that the Centre has announced that by 1st May 2021, every citizen above the age of 18 years will be eligible to have their dose of vaccine, the NPF said citizens of Nagaland are disappointed that the vaccine is out of stock in any medical houses, and the only remaining vaccine dose in stock is for the second phase.
The NPF strongly urged the Government to be serious enough in the health sector, particularly dealing the present pandemic and do justice for its citizens with outmost care and sincerity by immediately making available the vaccine. It also urged the Government to sensitize the people about the importance of vaccine so that no eligible persons are left out. (Page News Service)
