Bengaluru: Karnataka government is working on a war footing to improve the second dose coverage of the Covid vaccinations in the state.  On Thursday, chief minister Basavaraj Bommai directed the deputy commissioners to intensify efforts for it.

“The deputy commissioners should devote at least one hour daily for the vaccination programme besides constituting teams to visit the villages to convince the people to get vaccinated,” IANS quoted Bommai as saying at a virtual meeting with the deputy commissioners to review the progress of the vaccination drive in the state

“The state has achieved 90 percent coverage of the first dose and the extent of coverage of second dose stands at 57 percent. The second dose coverage should touch 70 percent by the end of December,” Bommai said.

Bengaluru Urban district tops the list of vaccination, while Kalaburagi is at the bottom.

The Chief Minister also cautioned against any complacency in vaccination drive in the backdrop of drop in the Covid cases in the state, IANS reported. “The cases are again on the rise in many countries. We should not leave any scope for a possible third wave in Karnataka,” he added.
