“It’s going to take four to five years until everyone gets the vaccine on this planet.

The Pune-based pharma firm has partnered with five international pharmaceutical firms, including AstraZeneca and Novavax, to develop a Covid-19 vaccine and committed to producing one billion doses, of which it has pledged half to India.

Poonawalla’s remarks came a day after Union health minister Harsh Vardhan said a vaccine against the coronavirus disease would be ready by early next year.“It may be ready by the first quarter of next year,” he had said.

On SII’s word to produce a billion doses, he said that the commitment far exceeded the capacity of other vaccine producers.“I know the world wants to be optimistic about it… [but] I have not heard of anyone coming even close to that [level] right now,” he told the business daily in a video call from London.
