Mumbai can vaccinate 95% of its population by Diwali if the current inoculation pace is maintained, said Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation chief Iqbal Chahal on Friday.

He said that if the vaccination target is achieved, all Covid-induced restrictions will be lifted by November-end.

“We have set the target to inoculate 100% of the population by Diwali. If that happens, we are going to open up everything,” Chahal said in an interview with CNBC.
