Hours after Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited Pune-based pharma company Serum Institute of India (SII) on Saturday (November 28), the company’s CEO Adar Poonawalla said that his company will seek permission for emergency use authorization of ‘Covishield’ in the next two weeks.
Covishield is the coronavirus vaccine developed jointly by the University of Oxford and AstraZeneca in collaboration with the SII.

So I’ve kept it in that priority,” Poonawalla had told reporters.
