Rising Covid-19 cases amid vaccine shortage in India is having an impact beyond its borders

As the second wave of Covid-19 hit India, it has created a lot of problems. It has incurred loss not only in terms of shortage of medical assistance but also in terms of lives. With the rising cases, India laid out a plan to vaccinate its population between the age group of 18-45 years. But the challenge is far from over. There are reports of shortages of vaccines all around the states and as a result, the exports of vaccine supplies have been stopped.

The export of vaccine supplies are also, a part of the COVAX initiative and a halt in these supplies would lead to heavy loss for the low developing countries. Arindam Bagchi, a spokesman for India’s Foreign Ministry, reported: “no update” on when vaccine exports would resume. There is no alternate supplier which is taken into consideration as of now by the government.

Thomas Bollyky remarked,” the profound impact of the export ban suggests other manufacturing options are needed.” This export control would be catastrophic for the countries around, especially for countries dependent on India’s vaccine supplies.

Thus, it is required for the government to take all the necessary action so that everyone’s life can be saved and the COVAX initiative is not hampered.
