More like Russian will supply the seed, same here like in Indonesia. State owned Biofarma is also producing Sinovac vaccine but the seed will come directly from China, so I dont think Bangladesh can produce as much as they want, it will still depend on Russian seed supply.Bangladesh also agrees to join platform initiated by China as India suspends vaccine shipments - Anadolu Agencywww.aa.com.tr
OK, BD has confirmed that it will both be buying the Sputnik vaccine and also producing it locally. Doses brought and produced should run into the 10s of millions just this year alone.
As far as Chinese vaccine is concerned, BD seems to have changed its mind and will procure it with China giving 600,000 as a gift initially. It probably is not a good idea to get the lowest efficacy vaccine available but at least it seems BD will be giving it out in far less doses than the Russian and UK AstraZeneca vaccines both of which have higher efficacy.
