Jaipur, June 25 2021 . Rajasthan is one of the leading States in the country by performing better in all parameters prescribed under covid-19 vaccination. The wastage of vaccines is also minimal. The State has developed the capacity of vaccinating 15 lakh people per day.
State’s Chief Secretary Shri Niranjan Arya informed this in a video conference held on Thursday under the chairmanship of Union cabinet secretary Shri Rajiv Gauba. Principal secretary Health Shri Akhil Arora, Secretary Medical Education Shri Vaibhav Galriya and Secretary Health Shri Siddharth Mahajan took part in the video conference.
Shri Arya gave detailed information about the preparations being made looking at the possible third wave of corona in the State. He said that medical and health infrastructure in the State is being strengthened in view of possible third wave. He said that the State has the capacity to vaccinate 15 lakh people per day, but at present based on the vaccine supply, around 3.25 lakh people are being administered the vaccine doses daily. There is sufficient arrangement for storing vaccines. In the absence of regular supply, there is a possibility of a break in the vaccination chain.
He emphasised on the need to ensure regular supply of vaccines. According to the current provisions, only 50% of the amount earmarked for covid-19 can be spent out of the amount available under Central Disaster Management Fund. The Chief Secretary demanded to increase the 50% amount earmarked for covid-19 under Central Disaster Management Fund to 80% in view of possibility of the third wave of corona. He said that last year an amount of Rs 1900 crore was made available under this fund, whereas this year only Rs 1500 crore has been made available. He demanded to provide the amount equivalent to last year.
Shri Arya said the facility of genome sequencing has been developed in Rajasthan and at present, genome sequencing of around 20 samples is being done daily.
During the video conference a State raised an issue regarding technical glitches in ventilators provided through PM CARES Fund and ventilators not installed at many places till now.
