World needs India’s cooperation in COVID-19 vaccine supply – Bill Gates

American Business magnate and philanthropist Bill Gates while talking to PTI said that India is likely to play key role in manufacture of COVID-19 vaccine. Sources highlighted Mr.Gates hoping that the vaccines will be rolled out from India in 2021.

He said “India’s willingness to play big role in manufacturing vaccines, send some of these to developing countries will be critical,”

“India is a leading vaccine producer; we need cooperation from India on manufacturing Covid-19 vaccine,” Bill Gates told PTI.  “All of us want to get a vaccine out in India as fast as we can, once we know that it’s very effective and very safe,” Gates added.

“It’s very likely that roll-out of Covid-19 vaccine will take place in fairly big volume (in India) sometime next year. I’m quite optimistic that by first quarter of next year, several of Covid-19 vaccines will have final stage,” said Gates.
