Mumbai: With the second wave of Corona wreaking havoc, Maharashtra is now in danger of a third wave. The coming days could be even more dangerous for Maharashtra, which is plagued by coronavirus. State Health Minister Rajesh Tope has predicted a third wave of corona. “Maharashtra may have a third wave of corona in July or August, so we are currently preparing to deal with it,” Tope said, quoting experts. Maharashtra has been most affected by the first and second waves of the corona.

Emphasis on eliminating oxygen deficiency

Health Minister Rajesh Tope told reporters that experts were predicting a similar transition situation in Maharashtra by the end of May. In such a scenario, if the state has to face the third wave of corona in July or August, our challenges will increase significantly. Seeing that, we have started preparations. In particular, our focus is on the availability of oxygen.

Notice to all Collectors

After attending the review meeting with Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, Tope said the meeting discussed various issues including Covid-19 management and vaccination. He said the CM stressed on the oxygen plant so that corona patients do not suffer from lack of oxygen. Health Minister Rajesh Tope said the government would not tolerate the lack of oxygen in view of the third wave of corona. So make adequate arrangements from now on. ‘

Regarding the fourth phase of vaccination, Rajesh Tope said that vaccination cannot be started from May 1. He said the state does not have adequate stocks of vaccines, thus vaccination cannot be started. Rajesh Tope said there should be enough stocks for at least five days to start the vaccination campaign. “We need at least 20 to 30 lakh doses so that vaccinations can start for people above 18 years of age,” he added.
