Seram will give priority to India, advising others to be patient


Adar Punawala, CEO of Seram Institute of India, the world’s largest vaccine manufacturer, has advised the countries and governments seeking patience to vaccinate against coronavirus. In a tweet on Sunday, he said there were “instructions” to prioritize India’s own needs in exporting vaccines. As a result, exports to other countries may be delayed.

India supplies three-fifths of the world’s vaccine production each year. However, India, a country of 1.3 billion people, is now home to the world’s largest immunization program. Thus, India has the experience of vaccinating an average of 39 crore people against measles and tuberculosis every year. But in this country with a large population, the Narendra Modi government is struggling to speed up coronavirus vaccination.

On Twitter, Seram’s CEO Punawala wrote, “I am telling different countries and governments that you are waiting to get a cove shield.” I humbly ask you to be patient. As well as following the guidelines of prioritizing India’s huge demand, Serum has to adjust to the needs of the rest of the world. We have continued our best efforts.

The New York Times reports that the CEO did not say from whom the Serum Institute received the instructions. No comment was received from his company in this regard.

Coronavirus has already infected more than 19 million people in India. India ranks second in the world in terms of transmission after the United States. Since coronavirus vaccination began in mid-January, it has not been possible to vaccinate even 1 percent of the total population.
