Open up COVID vaccine to more people: Omar

Srinagar: Describing the one-day token lockdown imposed in Madhya Pradesh meaningless, former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Sunday demanding opening up vaccine to more people.

Vaccines are the answer and not one day lockdowns, he said.

Taking to micro blogging site Twitter National Conference (NC) Vice President Omar said “  With a rampaging virus that has a 2-14 day incubation period this one day lockdown is meaningless tokenism. All it will do is create a misplaced sense of complacency. Vaccines are the answer not one day lockdowns. Open up vaccines to more people”.

He was reacting to a report which reads Madhya Pradesh: Streets remain deserted as one-day lockdown imposed in Indore as COVID19 cases surge.

Omar has recently said “ What a shame that while so many of us are waiting patiently for our turn to get a COVID vaccine the government admits that 6.5% of the vaccine doses are being wasted. If vaccines are allowed for all age groups this wastage can be brought down drastically.”
