Imphal, May 11:

With the Covishield Vaccine left for just 99,900 people (9,990 vials) at the State Vaccine Store (SVS) Manipur as per record at 9.40 am today, and the number of vaccines arriving at the moment is limited, it is likely that this stock is likely to be exhausted if the state government fails to procure more vaccines at the next one or two days. It is likely that the ongoing vaccination may be put at halt.
A highly reliable source told Imphal Times that as per government order each vaccination centers in across the state should jab to 150 persons. And as per report uploaded by the Health department authority through whatsapp said that Vaccination will be conducted today at 3 centers at Chandel district, 17 centers at Imphal East district, 12 centers at Imphal West district, 12 centers at Thoubal district, 8 centers at CCpur district, 7 centers at Kakching district and 1 at Jiribam. So the total number of centers that vaccinations are conducted today is at least 60 centers. This means the total vials to be in used today is 900 vails 9000 (nine Thousand) doses.
As per arithmetic , vaccine that has to be left with the State Vaccine Store (SVS) Manipur is 90,900 doses only i.e 9,090 vials only.
As per source from the State authority , around 2 lakhs 80 thousands have jabbed first dose vaccine and around 76 thousand have got the 2nd dose vaccine.
If one calculates , assuming at least 20 lakhs populations of the state should be vaccinated that the state is not in the position to vaccinate even 5 lakhs people in addition with those already vaccinated in the coming one week. 15 lakhs people will have to wait for the vaccine at a time when experts claims the COVID -19 pandemic may reached its peak by middle week of this running month May.
If the government fails to procure more numbers of Covishield vaccine, it will be impossible for the citizen of Manipur to remain secure as maximum number of people are unlikely to get the vaccine.
It can be noted that even after the imposition of lockdown and curfew for the last 10 days the number of infection increases day after another with report of total positive case reported yesterday at 424 and 13 deaths.
