Mumbai Mayor Kishori Bednekar said on Monday that Mumbai is ready to vaccinate children and is awaiting instructions, as she praised the city’s vaccination numbers and said people are following the Covid-19 protocol religiously.
Addressing the media a day after Mumbai announced no deaths since the pandemic hit India, Bednekar said, “We are in open mode. People are wearing masks. The coronavirus has not gone away but it has gone down. In the next generation genome sequencing, 343 samples have been tested.” And 54 percent were positive for the delta variant.”
