Sindh allowed to continue SOPs restriction

KARACHI: In Sindh of 47.9 million only 0.283 m people have been vaccinated so far.

The process of vaccination against Corona virus started across the country on February 2, 2021 and Sindh has so far received 653,000 different types of vaccines from the federation, of which 580,000 have been given to different districts.

The province has a population of about 47.8 million and the number of people receiving the second dose of the corona vaccine is less than 1% of the total population.

According to the health department, 283,000 people in the province have so far been vaccinated with the first dose of the cyanobacterium vaccine, including 159,000 elderly people and 123,000 health workers.

 Only 149,000 people in the province have been able to get the second dose of Sinopharm and the number of elderly people is only 64,000 and the remaining 85,000 are health workers.

 

In Karachi, Pakistan’s largest city, less than 1% of people have been vaccinated against the corona virus in three months, while the situation is even worse in other districts of Sindh province.

In all, only 51,000 elderly people in Karachi and only 13,000 elderly people in other districts of Sindh got both doses of the vaccine.

The number of citizens taking single dose across the province is 159,000 out of which 120,000 are citizens of Karachi which is around 1% of the total population of the province.

Similarly, if the population of Karachi is considered to be 16.459 million, only 51,000 elderly people in Karachi have been vaccinated against the corona virus, this ratio seems even more ridiculous.

According to the health department, different districts of Sindh currently have a total dose of only 128,046 vaccines.

The Sindh government has only 72,531 vaccines left, including 70,000 doses of SinoWeek, 2,391 doses of Sinopharm and only 70 doses of CanSino.
