Private hospitals to make vaccine purchases through CoWIN, Union govt's attempt to curb profiteering

Coming down on vaccine profiteering by private hospitals, the Union government has announced a new set of policies. As per these new guidelines, private companies will have to make all purchases through the CoWIN app and can purchase only a limited amount per month. They can no longer make any direct purchases from vaccine manufacturers. According to the government, this will reduce vaccine wastage and also curb black marketing of vaccines. The government tweaked the vaccine policy after reports of black marketing and vaccine wastage surfaced in the media. According to the earlier policy, private hospitals could procure 25% directly from manufacturers and administer them at a price set by the government. Watch the full video to know the whole story!
