Sharing more information regarding the same, Mumbai Mayor Kishori Pednekar, in an interaction with the media, informed that the city currently has only one day's supply of vaccine left.

Currently, there Centre should observe the need to supply vaccines in proportion to the population. While the Prime Minister seems to be positive about Maharashtra's demand for more doses of vaccine, the administration does not seem to be as positive and vigilant, which is affecting the common man in Maharashtra. 

Several people are being infected with coronavirus and due to the political game, the infection is not under control, state the experts. At present, many vaccination centers in Mumbai have run out of vaccines and the remaining few places have only one day's supply left. This has led to long queues at vaccination centers.
