Mangaluru: Amid rising Covid-19 cases in the city, a large number of people were seen standing in queues outside Wenlock hospital to vaccinate themselves against the COVID-19.

Hundreds of people above 45-year were seen standing outside the vaccination center while some sitting inside, all of them were waiting for their turn to get themselves vaccinated against the virus.

Dakshina Kannada on Thursday, April 29 registered 1,175 Covid-19 cases and one death in a span of 24 hours. With this, the total active Covid-19 cases in Dakshina Kannada have gone up to 5,562.

The total Covid-19 cases in Dakshina Kannada is 43,902 and the total number of deaths reported are 754.

Former Chief Minister and Congress leader Siddaramaiah yesterday said that state Health Department has not achieved the target of vaccinating people above 45 years and there is likely to be a delay in vaccination of all adults that is scheduled to begin on May 1.

The Centre has recently announced that all above 18 years of age eligible to get vaccinated from May 1. It has also allowed state governments and private hospitals to purchase vaccines from manufacturers.

Registration for the new eligible population groups has commenced from 4 pm on Wednesday. Potential beneficiaries can either register directly on Co-WIN portal (cowin.gov.in) or through the Aarogya Setu app.
