COVID-19 vaccine thief returned 1700 doses of vaccine with an apology note!

In Haryana’s Jind, a robber who had fled with a bag holding over 1,700 doses of COVID-19 vaccine changed his mind and returned the vaccinations with a note stating that the contents of the bag were undisclosed at the time it was taken. In a note added to the bag full of Covishield and Covaxin doses, the robber wrote in Hindi, “Sorry, I didn’t know it was medicines for corona.” The police said they are on the lookout for the robber and have lodged a report in connection with Jind General Hospital’s storeroom.

The robber handed the bag over to a man outside the Civil Lines police station around noon today. The unidentified suspect left after telling the man he was collecting food for the police and wanted to do another errand.

From May 1 onwards, India has extended its vaccine campaign to cover those above the age of 18. This category’s registration will open on April 28. The inoculation procedure and paperwork required to obtain the vaccine remain unchanged.

The latest increase in COVID-19 cases has triggered what is now being referred to as a deadlier second outbreak of the pandemic. Images about distraught people struggling to secure oxygen or a hospital bed for their friends and families are abounding on social media.
