Union minister Nitin Gadkari on Tuesday said that more pharma companies should be allowed to manufacture the Covid-19 vaccine in the country during the pandemic to scale up production. While addressing a meeting via video conferencing Gadkari said, “If the demand of vaccine is more than the supply, it creates the problem. So, instead of one company, let 10 more companies be given the license to manufacture the vaccine.” “There are 2-3 laboratories in every state. They should be given the formula to produce the Covid-19 vaccines. They can give royalty,” Gadkari said.
