Tirupur MP blames Centre for vaccine, oxygen shortage | Coimbatore News – Times of India

Coimbatore: Tirupur MP Ok Subbarayan has blamed the Union authorities for shortage of Covid vaccines and oxygen.
“On Wednesday, 24 people in Nashik died without oxygen and 2.95 lakh people tested positive in the country,” Subbarayan’s letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi mentioned. “Cases in Tamil Nadu are increasing rapidly and so is the demand for oxygen. At this juncture, the Centre, without the state government’s permission, diverted 45 metric tonnes of oxygen from Tamil Nadu to Andhra Pradesh and Telengana,” he mentioned.
Calling out the acute vaccine shortage in districts, the MP mentioned he had gone for his second dose solely to be refused and requested to come back again the subsequent day. “It is the central and state governments’ responsibility to ensure we have enough stock of medicines, oxygen and vaccines. Instead of encouraging private companies, they should have encouraged the Pasteur Institute of India and King Institute in Chennai to manufacture vaccines.”
Tirupur has been going through a serious vaccine shortage, particularly of Covaxin, resulting in different districts like Coimbatore sending doses. The district had been recording 200 to 300 instances a day for the previous one week resulting in the quantity of lively instances reaching 2,234. It recorded two deaths on Wednesday.
