January 13th – Uttar Pradesh, India, found the names of deceased nurses in a list of front-line workers who were going to be vaccinated against the novel coronavirus on January 16. The local government has ordered an investigation.
According to India Today on the 13th, officials in Ayodhya City, Uttar Pradesh, made a serious mistake in the compilation process and actually registered a deceased nurse.
This list, compiled by Ayotiya’s health department, lists one deceased nurse, a retired nurse and a resigned nurse who will be vaccinated.
At present, the Uttar Pradesh Health Minister has ordered an investigation into the matter and promised to prosecute the relevant officials.
Local officials said that these names were incorrectly entered because the list was prepared three months ago and has not been updated.
India’s COVID-19 vaccination will be launched on January 16th local time, and key workers in Uttar Pradesh will be vaccinated in 852 centers across the state.
On 11 January, the second exercise of COVID-19 vaccination was conducted at 1,500 centers in Uttar Pradesh, and the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh also carried out an inspection at the hospital in Lucknow, its capital.
