A second wave of the pandemic is looming in India with Covid-19 cases rocketing to their highest level in months and pressure growing for vaccines to be used at home rather than exported to Britain and around the world.
India added 46,951 new cases to the tally today in its bleakest day since November 11 while daily deaths climbed above 200 for the first time since January.
With infection rates doubling in less than a fortnight, the spotlight has turned on a sluggish jab roll-out which has reached only three per cent of the population despite India being the biggest manufacturer of vaccines in the world.
WNU Editor: India is the biggest manufacturer of vaccines in the world. With infection numbers increasing there are now calls in New Delhi to limit or stop vaccine exports.
