With zero adherence to Covid-appropriate behavior and social distancing, these visuals pose a serious question on Madhya Pradesh’s vaccination Drive. Some reports even point out the loopholes in the vaccination drive of Madhya Pradesh. Hundreds of people from different age groups turned up at a site in the hope of receiving a shot.
Speaking on the incident, Chief Medical and Health Officer of Dhar district, Dr Jitendra Chaudhary assured to look into the matter. This is not the first time that Madhya Pradesh has seen a stampede like situation at a vaccination centre. Earlier in the month of July, a similar kind of situation was seen in the Chhindwara district of Madhya Pradesh where almost 600 people rushed to the vaccination centre.
However, there were only 280 doses available after which the rest of the people had to be turned away. The video from the vaccination centre went viral on the Internet where people were seen rushing and crowding to get a seat on the chairs set up inside. People were seen skidding & falling on top of one another.
