Vaccine wastage row in Rajasthan: Gehlot govt orders audit probe after Centre levels allegations

The second wave of the COVID pandemic has led to an acute shortage of vaccine supply and medical infra in several states across the country. The concerns over vaccine shortage and wastage are now coming to light and the Ashok Gehlot government is now under the scrutiny of the Central govt. As per the sources, the Centre has alleged that the Ashok Gehlot govt has wasted as many as 11.5 L vaccine doses and is also under-reporting deaths due to COVID in the state. To counter these allegations, the Gehlot government has now ordered an audit probe into the vaccine wastage and the deaths that have been reported due to the COVID pandemic.
