Adar Poonawala has said that vaccine production is a special process. Because of this it cannot be made overnight. It takes time to go through all the processes. He denied the lack of order and said that at present, the central government has ordered 26 crore doses of him.
Other Poonawala clarified on delay in vaccine supply
On the crisis of vaccine shortage, Adar Poonawala, CEO of Serum Institute (SII) based in Pune, the manufacturer of the Covishield vaccine, has given an important explanation. For the last two days, questions were arising that the Serum Institute is producing the vaccine at a slow pace due to low orders placed by the government. Refuting this news, Adar Poonawala has said that vaccine production is a special process. Because of this it cannot be made overnight. It takes time to go through all the processes. He denied the lack of order and said that at present, the central government has ordered 26 crore doses of him.
Adar Poonawala tweeted a letter and said that what I said was misinterpreted. In this subject, I want to clarify a few things. First of all, vaccine production is a specialized process. Therefore, it is not possible to increase production overnight. It is important for all of you to understand that the population of India is very large and it is not easy for all adults to prepare and give dosas. Many developed countries and companies are struggling despite being sparsely populated.
There is no shortage of support from the Government of India
Adar Poonawala wrote in his letter that since April last year, we are working with the Government of India. We have received all kind of assistance from the Government of India i.e. scientific, regulatory and economic. Till date, we have received a total of more than 26 crore dose orders. Out of these, 15 crore doses have been delivered. We have been paid in 100 percent advance for 11 crore doses. For this, we have got Rs 1732.50 crore. Delivery of this order will be done in the next few months.
In the next few months 11 crore doses will be supplied to state and private hospitals. We realize that everyone feels that they should get the vaccine available as soon as possible. This is also our attempt. We are putting full emphasis for this. We will push more and strengthen India’s war against Kovid. In these words, Adar Poonawala ends his letter.
Adar Poonawala accused of threatening
Earlier, Adar Poonawala moved to London with his family a few days ago and there he alleged in an interview that he was being bullied on the phone by some politicians, entrepreneurs and influential people and pressuring him for early delivery of vaccine. A lot of uproar started in the country on this. Accusations started between political parties. When Poonawalla was asked to name the bully, Poonawalla said that if I took anyone’s name or said anything in response, I will be beheaded. Saying this, he refused to answer this question.
