India will get 56 Lakh Vaccines within the next three days.
The Union’s Ministry of Health and Family Welfare dismissed the media news of the new Corona Vaccine. It is known that the State and Union Territories still have 7 lakh doses of Corona vaccine. More than 57 lakh doses will arrive at the Center within the next three days. The Center will deliver all those vaccines to the States.
The government further said that so far, a total of 16 crores of 54 lakh doses of vaccine have been provided to states and territories in the union utterly free of charge.
Recently, some media outlets claimed that the central government’s last time cited the vaccine was in March, where Seram Institute was allocated Rs 10 crore and Bharat Biotech Rs 2 crore. The central government assured that the social media claim was fake.
On behalf of the government, it has been reported that on April 26, Rs. Rs 1,732.50 million has been given to the Seram Institute. The total price of the Rs 11 million vaccines they will provide from May to July has been paid in advance. Previously, 100 million Covi-shields were traded, of which, as of Monday, May 3, the Seram Institute has already provided six crores 84 lakh 40 thousand doses of Covishield.
