Sagar: A doctor who administered corona vaccine to 30 students using a single needle has shocked parents.
The incident took place in Sagar district of Madhya Pradesh state. Corona Vaccination Camp was held at Jain Public School in Sagar District. Dr. Jitendra was involved in administering the vaccine. In this case he used the same needle repeatedly for all the students while giving the vaccine. A shocked parent took a video of the incident. The video shows Dr. Jitendra inoculating 30 students with a single injection.
Single-use needles were introduced in India in the 1990s. Single-use needles were introduced to prevent the spread of HIV.
However, this incident has caused shock. When the doctor concerned was questioned about this, he said, “I know that a needle used for one person should not be used for another person. That’s why I asked the superiors who assigned me this job if I should use this one needle to vaccinate all the students. They said yes. I did it accordingly. “How can it be my fault”, the video has gone viral on the internet.
