“Serum’s investment will support clinical trials, research and development, and possibly manufacturing of vaccines. This will help the UK and the world to defeat the coronavirus pandemic and other deadly diseases. The serum has already started phase one trials in the UK of a one-dose nasal vaccine for coronavirus, in partnership with Codagenix INC,” the statement added.

The SII investment came after news reports claimed that India has not placed fresh orders for Covid vaccines with the Serum Institute of India (SII) and Bharat BioTech since March.

The Indian government and the SII refuted the reports.

Poonawalla said his company has received orders for 26 crore doses from the Indian government.

“As of today, we received total orders of over 26 crore doses of which we supplied more than 15 crore doses. We have also got a 100 percent advance of Rs 1,732.50 crore by GoI for the next tranche of 11 crore doses in the next few months. Another 11 crore doses would be supplied in the second channel for states and private hospitals in the next few months,” – Poonawalla

The Financial Times had reported Poonawalla as saying that vaccine shortage could continue in India till July.

The production is expected to increase from about 60 million-70 million doses a month to 100 million in July, Poonawalla was quoted as saying in the report.

Poonawalla said that his comments may have been “misinterpreted”.
