These injections were supplied via airways to different parts of the state, so that the people who need them, can get them on time. As per reports, this lot of Remdesivir shots are also being made available to private hospitals under the prescribed protocol.

Divisional Commissioner Pawan Sharma said, "Out of 125 boxes which reached Indore Airport, 25 boxes were delivered to Bhopal district, four boxes to Hoshangabad district and five boxes to Sagar district. Similarly, 10 boxes reached Gwalior, one box at Chambal, four boxes at Rewa, three boxes at Shahdol and 21 boxes were sent to Jabalpur by a state plane. Arrangements have been made to transport 14 boxes to Ujjain and 38 boxes to Indore.''
