Khargone (Madhya Pradesh): In a bizarre case, a dead person who had died recently had received a “Covid booster pending message”. The message was darkly ironic and painful for his grieving family members.
Amid the rising corona cases across the district, local administration is trying to shore up its booster vaccine programme. A woman (resident of Mangrul area) who died around three months ago has received a message related to Covid-19 booster shot. In this regard, CMHO DS Chouhan has sought a relevant reply from district immunisation officer Dr Sanjay Bhatt.
On the other hand, Bhatt claimed that usually, such incidents occur due to technical reasons and glitches. The system would be improved and the matter investigated.
