Maharashtra health minister Rajesh Tope on Wednesday said the state was left with 1.4 million doses, which would last only three days. He urged the Centre to prioritise shipments to the state, which is reporting close to 10 times higher number of new infections every day than the region with the next-highest numbers. Maharashtra chief minister Uddhav Thackeray, who is attending the meeting, on Monday wrote to Modi for permission to vaccinate all people aged above 25 amid the spike in cases. His Delhi counterpart, Arvind Kejriwal, this week wrote to Modi saying the 45-year age bar be removed for vaccination. Punjab chief minister Amarinder Singh made similar demands earlier. Source: HT
