I got Covishield from India, says Abdulla Shahid, President of the 76th UN General Assembly
President of the 76th session of the UN General Assembly Abdulla Shahid has said he had received the two doses of the Covishield vaccine manufactured in India, as have a "large portion" of other countries around the world.
The Covishield vaccine, which has been developed by British-Swedish pharmaceutical company
AstraZeneca NSE 0.89 %, is manufactured in India by Pune-based Serum Institute of India.
"On vaccines, that's a very technical question you have asked me. I got Covishield from India, I've got the two doses. I don't know how many countries would say that Covishield is acceptable or not, but a large portion of the countries have got Covishield," Shahid said at his first press conference here on Friday.
