A clinic in Kyrgyzstan, an Asian country, had to throw out nearly 1,000 doses of the Sputnik V vaccine against Kovid-19 after a person switched off a refrigerator to charge his cell phone. This information is from France Presse.
The case was confirmed by local authorities and took place in a public clinic in the city of Kyrgyzstan’s capital and largest city, Biskac, in April, but has just been released.
The government was criticized for the delay in explaining the missed dose. The lost vaccines were part of a batch of 20,000 doses distributed by Russia as humanitarian aid to the Central Asian country. The vaccination campaign in Kyrgyzstan began in March and is the most commonly used immunizer in the country of Sputnik V, which also vaccinates the population with vaccination from the Chinese company Sinopharm.
According to Health Minister Alimkadir Beshenaliyev, a maintenance worker may be responsible for an error while looking for an outlet to charge his cell phone.
“If it is the fault of one of the employees, the cleaning lady or someone else, the clinic will have to respond financially,” the manager said.
As of Friday (21), the Asian country has recorded more than 100,000 cases of Kovid-19 and 1,735 deaths from the disease, in a population of about 6.5 million people.
