During an investigation into an alleged vaccination scam that may have affected thousands of people, authorities arrested at least 14 people and closed off an Indian private hospital.
According to CNN, a senior Mumbai police official, Vishal Thakur, claimed, “They were using saline water and injecting it.” He was alluding to the alleged swindle.

“They did this at every phony vaccination camp they held.”
In 12 locations around Mumbai, he said, about 2,500 people received phony COVID-19 vaccines. The organizers reportedly included medical professionals and charged between $10 and $17 every COVID-19 shot, according to reports.
Thakur told CNN, “We have arrested doctors.” “They used a hospital to fabricate fraudulent certificates, vials, and syringes.”
In a press conference, Mumbai’s joint commissioner of police, Vishwas Nangre Patil, said that more persons could be arrested as part of the inquiry, and that several of “the culprits” had confessed to using saline.
“None of our members got any symptoms, and we had to pay in cash,” one resident of a “housing society,” or housing cooperative, that gave the bogus vaccines told News18. We didn’t believe it at the time.”
“We definitely want to know what has been injected in our bodies,” another cooperative member told News18. My family has taken a total of six shots. What if something occurs to all of us at the same time? “Who is to blame?”
Prime Minister Narendra Modi began a vaccine blitz in June, promising to give states millions of doses for free. According to data provided by Johns Hopkins University, about 4.5 percent of the country’s population of more over 1 billion has been vaccinated so far.
Meanwhile, according to the university, COVID-19 has killed over 400,000 people in India. The CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, sometimes known as the coronavirus, is the cause of COVID-19.
Separately, according to a July 3 release from India’s Bharat Biotech, studies of a vaccine revealed it was 93.4 percent effective against severe symptomatic COVID-19.
The findings showed that 65.2 percent of people were protected against the so-called Delta strain, which was originally discovered in India and caused a spike in infections and the world’s highest daily death rates in April and May.
India has begun administering the AstraZeneca vaccine, which is manufactured in India by the Serum Institute of India, which said last month that monthly output would increase to over 100 million doses in July.
Bharat Biotech expects to produce 23 million doses each month by the end of the year.
