BBC: Coronavirus: India temporarily halts Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine exports
India has placed a temporary hold on all exports of the Oxford-AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccine, foreign ministry sources have told the BBC.
They said rising cases meant domestic demand was expected to pick up in the coming weeks, and so the doses were needed for India's own rollout.
The move – described as a "temporary squeeze" by officials – is expected to affect supplies until the end of April. Some 190 countries under the Covax scheme are likely to be affected.
