‘Twenty million doses of vaccine needed to meet disrupted supply due to rising demand in India’

The World Health Organization has said that due to the growing vaccine demand in India, due to this, the supply of vaccines in the world has been interrupted.

New York: The World Health Organization said on Monday that Covacs, a global alliance formed to ensure equal supply of Covid-19 vaccines worldwide, was promptly vaccinated to meet vaccine supply disrupted by rising vaccine demand in India. Two crore doses are needed.

India is the largest supplier

Significantly, India is the largest supplier of AstraZeneca vaccines worldwide. Pune-based Serum Institute of India (SII), the world’s largest vaccine manufacturer, is a producer of the vaccine Covishield developed by Oxfod University and the British-Swedish company AstraZeneca.

According to a release by the World Health Organization, “Covacs urgently need 20 million doses to overcome the bottleneck in vaccine supply due to increased vaccine demand in India.” India is the main supplier of AstraZeneca vaccines at Covacs. “

Big Vaccination Campaign in India

Significantly, the corona infection situation in India remains very serious. At the same time, the corona vaccination campaign is being run in the country at a rapid pace. In terms of population, more vaccine doses are needed in India. Apart from this, now in India, vaccination of those above the age of 18 years has also been started. However, due to lack of vaccine in many states, this campaign has not started yet. At the same time, the Government of India has also spoken about the import of vaccines.
