'Lift raw material export ban': SII chief seeks US help to ramp up Covid vaccine production

Apr 16, 2021 16:27 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Serum Institute of India (SII) CEO Adar Poonawalla on Friday said the US needs to lift its embargo on raw material exports to help ramp up Covid vaccine production. Tagging the twitter handle of the President of the United States, Poonawalla in a tweet humbly requested the US to lift the embargo.

Poonawalla had earlier admitted that SII has been facing problems in sending out required number of batches of vaccines due to the bureaucratic and government-related hurdles.

SII is currently manufacturing anti-coronavirus vaccine Covishield, developed by Astrazeneca and Oxford University.
