5 killed in blaze at Indian producer of COVID-19 vaccine

Serum Institute of India is the world's largest maker of vaccines

At least five people were killed in a fire that broke out Thursday at a building under construction at Serum Institute of India, the world's largest vaccine manufacturer, officials said. The company said the blaze would not affect production of the COVID-19 vaccine. Murlidhar Mohol, mayor of Pune city in southern Maharashtra state, said five bodies were found in the rubble after the flames were extinguished by firefighters. Mahol said the victims were probably construction workers. He said the cause of the fire had not been determined and the extent of damage was not immediately clear. Serum Institute of India's CEO, Adar Poonawalla, said he was "deeply saddened" by the loss of life. He said there would be no reduction in vaccine manufacturing because the company has other available facilities.

The Associated Press last month reported that it hopes to increase production capacity from 1.5 billion doses to 2.5 billion doses per year by the end of 2021. The new facility is part of the expansion. Of the more than 12 billion coronavirus vaccine doses expected to be produced this year, rich countries have already bought about 9 billion, and many have options to buy even more. As a result, Serum Institute is likely to make most of the vaccines that will be used by developing nations.
