Pfizer India Donation: Pfizer India donated $ 70 million in drugs to treat COVID-19


Major Global pharma dispatches its $ 70 million (over 510 crore) drug, from distribution centers in the US, Europe and Asia, which have been identified as part of the COVID-19 treatment protocol in India, the company’s Chairman and CEO Albert Burla said Monday.

He said in a mailing message sent to Pfizer India employees that he had shared it about him on another link.

Burla said: “We are committed to being a partner in India’s war against this disease and are working quickly to mobilize the largest humanitarian relief effort in our company’s history.”

Currently, Pfizer colleagues at distribution centers in the US, Europe and Asia are working hard to expedite shipments of Pfizer drugs that have been identified by the Government of India as part of its COVID-19 treatment protocol.

“We donate these medicines to help make sure that every COVID-19 patient in every public hospital across the country can access the Pfizer medicines they need, free of charge,” Burla said.

He added that these medicines, valued at more than $ 70 million, will be provided immediately, and “we will work closely with the government and our NGO partners to get them to where they are most needed.”
