Few cities in India have started with the preparations for the storage of vaccines; however, Nagpur Municipal Corporation is yet to take any initiative in this regard.
While speaking to Dr. Bharvihar he said, “We are ready and fully prepared for the storage and just waiting for the guidelines by the State and the Central Government”.
When asked in how much time can we expect the guidelines he said “It’s not possible for us or anyone to share with you the exact time, but what we can share is that the citizens will not have to wait for a long period of time. The citizens can expect the good news of the vaccine really soon.”
Many citizens fear that vaccines coming to the city is not the end of their problem but its storage is another point of concern. Speaking on this issue he said, “Citizens need not worry or panic, we know the extreme temperature the vaccine needs to be stored in before injecting it and we have made all the necessary arrangements for that as well”.
As of now, he has also said that the NMC has not at all compromised on the health of the citizens as quarantine centers are working in a full swing, daily testing of citizens is also done. The increase in the number of COVID cases is a point of concern for all of us.
