The countries with the #money
have bought the #vaccines
for them as you see. #India
which is home to #Serum
Institute Of India (#SII
), largest vaccines manufacturer with capacity to manufacture 1.5B vaccines per year, has provided it's people with just 2.02M vaccines so far, where as it has exported more than 10M vaccine jabs as per contractual obligations. Indian #government
has been also sending vaccines to neighbours as aid. These free vaccines is good step but not adequate.
The Vaccines manufacturers #Pfizer
have been supplying nearly all of their jabs to USA. Astrazeneca has been supplying to UK and some EU countries. The SII which is producing multiple vaccines at it's facility has been supplying to Indian government and other governments under contracts. The Indian Government is also buying from Bharat Biotech, other Indian manufacturer with it's own vaccine. The India is sending vaccines manufactured by SII to some of the friendly countries, such as Nepal, Bhutan, Maldives, Afghanistan, ShriLanka, etc. as aid in grant. It is sending vaccines as per contractual obligations to Bagladesh, UAE, Qatar, Brazil, etc. All in all, everybody is trying to get vaccines for themselves and then near and dear ones! But, there is very little that is being done for African and oceanic countries.
The virus is the rapidly transmitting through airborne medium. In such case either all are safe of none of us are safe! That is why it is only but necessary to think of all.
