Officials in Mumbai decided to suspend Covid-19 vaccination drive for the next two days because of the warning given by IMD over Tauktae cyclone. The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation clarified that there will be no inoculation on May 15 and 16.

It is just a precautionary measure as cyclone Tauktae is expected to pass close to Mumbai, told the Additional Municipal Commissioner Suresh Kakani.
