Maharashtra Government will vaccinate all its citizens free of cost, informed State Minister Nawab Malik on April 25. Maharashtra is reeling under serious COVID crisis as the state is reporting over 60,000 new cases from past few days.
Maharashtra Minority Development Minister Nawab Malik reacted to Prime Minister Narendra Modi's address to nation on April 20. He reacted to PM's 'States to consider lockdowns only as the last option and focus creating on micro containment zones' statement and said the entire country is reeling under the threat of COVID-19 and a situation has come where imposing lockdown is the only option. Malik also pointed out that various courts in the country have given directives for lockdown. "The people were hopeful that a relief package would be announced by the PM for migrant workers, poor, small traders but he didn't talk about the help that the Centre is providing," Mallik added.
Professor K Vijay Raghavan is the principal scientific adviser to the Centre. On Wednesday, he said that a third wave of the Covid-19 pandemic is inevitable. The professor explained that phase 1 was a mere generalist approach of the virus while phase 2 has more potent viruses arising due to post immunity. He insists that the population should be prepared for the new wave.
