'No Shortage Of Remdesivir, Need Covid Vaccines': Punjab Health Minister

Punjab Health Minister Balbir Singh Sidhu on Sunday said there was no shortage of antiviral drug Remdesivir, but the state needed vaccine doses against the coronavirus. “We can vaccinate 2 lakh people daily,” he said at the NDTV Solutions Summit.

Talking about the coronavirus situation in Punjab, he said the state’s Covid positivity rate was 4.5 per cent and 30 per cent beds were occupied.

He said in the last coronavirus wave, students coming from other states and non-resident Indians or NRI had contributed to the total cases. “We had low testing capacity,” he said, adding it has been ramped up massively.

He also said that at vaccination centres, people aged from 20 to 45 are turning up for inoculations against the deadly virus.
