A total of 1000 doses of Covishield vaccine have got spoiled at a hospital in Assam’s Cachar district as the covid shots were stored in sub-zero temperatures.

The incident that happened at Silchar Medical College and Hospital was reported to the health department on January 16, and came to light on Monday night, according to a report in Times of India.

Assam health minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said that incident might have occurred due to the lack of training as the officials concerned could not store the vaccine properly.
