New York: The head of the World Health Organization (WHO), Tedros Adnam Ghebroys, has said that after the outbreak of the devastating Covid-19 in India, the Covax (Caux) promise to supply the vaccine to India’s Serum Institute will be fulfilled. Kovacs is a global initiative to supply the global coronavirus vaccine. The WHO director general told a daily news conference that the global vaccine supply for Covid-9 had been affected and that Covacs had already shrunk to 19 million doses by the end of June.

As many as 6.5 crore vaccines have been given to 124 countries so far under the Kovacs, Global Covid Vaccine Parity Scheme, but it is up to the countries and manufacturers to fulfill their commitments.
“After the once devastating outbreak in India has subsided, the Serim Institute of India needs to get back on track and deliver on its promise to supply Kovacs,” Gheribius said. It is further said that due to the catastrophic increase caused by the coronavirus in India, the supply of vaccine under Covax has been disrupted.
