Taking to Twitter, Rahul Gandhi shared a newspaper clipping highlighting that states are complaining about vaccines shortages while the centre is claiming sufficient stock.”Only jumlas, no vaccines,” tweeted Rahul Gandhi.

An average of 61.14 lakh vaccine doses were given across the country between June 21 to 27, as per the Centre’s Co-Win portal. However, between July 5 to 11, the daily average doses plummeted to 34.32 lakh.
Other states such as Delhi, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra and Odisha are also experiencing shortages in COVID-19 vaccines.
Lav Agarwal, Joint Secretary of Union Health Ministry informed that a further surge in cases is being noted in some states, like Manipur, Mizoram, Tripura and Arunachal Pradesh. He also noted that there are some states, where cases have come down but are still being witnessed in the form of the plateau.
“We would like to request to everyone, when we talk about the third wave (of COVID-19), we are taking it as a weather update and not understanding its seriousness and our responsibilities associated with it,” he said.
