CM Jagan writes letter to PM Modi, seeks transfer of covaxin technology
The present manufacturing capacity of Covaxin cannot meet the enormous demand for the vaccines, said Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy in a detailed letter written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He requested the PM to direct Bharat Biotech to facilitate the technology transfer of Covaxin as it was developed in collaboration with Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) and National Institute of Virology (NIV). The CM also urged Modi to see that ICMR-NIV provides the viral strain to anyone interested and capable of manufacturing the vaccine. The transfer of technology will speed up vaccination drive, the CM stated in his letter.
