New York: The World Health Organization said on Monday that Kovacs, a global alliance formed to ensure an equal supply of Covid-19 vaccines worldwide, was promptly vaccinated to meet vaccination supply disrupted by rising vaccine demand in India. Two crore doses are needed.
India is the Largest Supplier of Vaccine
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 Oxford University and the British-Swedish company AstraZeneca.
“#COVAX has now shipped almost 50 million doses of #COVID19 vaccine to 121 countries and economies, but we continue to face severe supply constraints.
Solving this dilemma demands courageous leadership from the world’s largest economies.”-@DrTedros

According to a release by the World Health Organization, “Kovacs 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 Kovacs. ”
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 the lack of vaccines 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.
