A UK government spokesman said on Thursday that the Serum Institute “is one part of our supply chain for the AstraZeneca vaccine,” which also includes facilities in Britain and Europe.
There was also a massive jump in the vaccine doses administered in India, with 11 lakh doses given on Thursday, Times of India reported. The report said that on Wednesday India had administered closer to 10 lakh doses.
This comes even as cases continued to rise in India, especially in Maharashtra. On Thursday Mumbai reported 1,104 new cases and Pune reported 1,831.
