Mumbai recorded 5,542 new coronavirus cases on Sunday, its lowest single-day rise in infections so far this month, the civic body said
Amid a surge in Covid-19 cases in Mumbai, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has shared the list of vaccination centres which are operational today. As per the BMC list, 94 Covid-19 vaccination centres are open. This includes state, private as well as Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai (MCGM) centres.
The vaccination drive for COVID-19 has hit a hurdle in Mumbai due to the limited supply of Covaxin and Covishield. Phase 3 of vaccination will commence from May 1 and the second phase of the same is currently underway.
"Here’s a list of all CVCs functional today (26 Apr, 2021). All MCGM & State CVCs are operational. Some private centres are expected to start with a slight delay. In addition to these, few more CVCs are collecting their stocks & will be functional by tomorrow," the civic body tweeted.
