Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Wednesday claimed that Bharat Biotech, the manufacturer of coronavirus vaccine Covaxin, has refused to supply additional doses to the Capital.

Bharat Biotech said they cannot give us more doses because they have to supply according to the Centre’s order.”
