Meanwhile, head of the India’s COVID-19 task force on Friday said the country wants to resume exports of coronavirus doses but can’t do so until its domestic needs are met. 

“Once our immediate need of vaccinating a significant proportion of Indian people is achieved and vaccine stockpiles are visible from multiple sources, we would then like to play the role of serving others and providing vaccines to them,” Dr. Vinod K. Paul said in an interview with The Associated Press.

Paul defended the Indian government’s move to restrict vaccine exports in April as it battled a ferocious surge in infections.

He noted that India had given away a “substantial” amount of vaccines at the start of the year as it launched its own immunization drive.

“So that has to be respected and has to be recognized, as not many nations have done that,” he said.
