  • FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “India’s demand for Covid-19 jabs outpaces supply across country amid continuous surge of cases” – below is their description.

    India has reached the grim milestone of 300,000 people dying from Covid-19, with the devastating wave of infections. If it seems to be easing off in big cities, it is still hitting hard the poor countryside, while slow vaccine deliveries are complicating the country’s fight against the pandemic and forcing many to miss their shots. Demand is outpacing supply, despite India being the world’s biggest producer of vaccines.
