Sputnik V Covid Vaccine Importer Threatens Pakistan If Desired Price Not Fixed Soon

Karachi:
The Russian Sputnik V COVID-19 vaccine exporter on Tuesday threatened Pakistan to "re-export" the 50,000 doses if the company's desired price is not set by the government soon.

"AGP Limited, which imported the 50,000 doses of the Sputnik V vaccine, has threatened to re-export the shipment if their desired price is not fixed by the government. The drug pricing committee of DRAP (Drug Regulatory Authority of Pakistan had recommended ₹ 8,449 for two doses of the vaccine, which is not acceptable to the importer," an official of the federal government told Geo.tv on condition of anonymity.

The importer also said selling the shipment to some other country was "an option if an appropriate price is not fixed" of their product.

According to Geo.tv, the official maintained that during "verbal communication", the importer threatened that they had the option of re-exporting it or selling it to some other country if an appropriate rate, as per the government's formula of 40 per cent in addition to the landing cost of the product, is not applied while fixing the price.

"The government is already under harsh criticism for the price recommended by DRAP's pricing committee at Pakistani ₹ 8,449. It was calculated on the basis of a landing cost of USD 30 but people are comparing it with the cost of the Russian vaccine in India and criticising the government for fixing a higher price as compared to the neighbouring country," the official added.

On the other hand, officials at AGP Limited said that they had the "option of re-exporting" the shipment or selling it to some other country where they have been "assured" that they will get a price "over and above their landing cost in Pakistan", reported Geo.tv.

"The government's price of ₹ 8,449 is not affordable for us because in addition to landing cost, there is distributor margin, storage and transportation costs, and hospitals and institutions will also take their service charges," an official of the company said.

Till date they haven't been able to fully vaccinate their population against polio. It's a waste of an effort trying to give them donations of that Oxford vaccine made in SII. We may as well jump the bandwagon and sell it at profits.

Better idea. Offer vaccine for free if they get a vasectomy.
