Bharat Biotech said today it has resumed export of Covaxin, and has executed long-pending orders in November.

The company also said exports to additional countries will commence from December, according to a statement it shared on Twitter.

It was not immediately clear whether or not these exports were made under the global vaccine-sharing facility COVAX.

Covaxin, which is 78 per cent effective against severe cases of COVID-19, was approved for emergency use listing by the World Health Organization (WHO) earlier this month.

It is the only home-grown vaccine being used in India’s vaccination programme, although it accounts for only about 11 per cent of the nearly 1.23 billion doses administered so far.
