A slight delay may occur when Sri Lanka receives the one million doses of the COVID-19 vaccines from the Serum Institute of India, Cabinet Spokesperson Minister Ramesh Pathirana said.

 “The delay may be expected due to the fire which recently erupted at a building of the manufacturing plant of the Institute,” the Minister said.

He said this during the press conference held this morning to announce the Cabinet decisions.

    Define the slight delay without misleading the public . If the vaccines are delayed beyond May the effectiveness of the first doze is lost to those received it . Then what ??? You are playing with human lives remember .

    What will happen to the people who received the first dose? Hope government will take necessary actions to purchase required number of vaccines at least for the second dose on time as the effectiveness of the first dose may diminish if the second dose is not received on time.
