Davos: Albert BourlaCEO of an American pharmaceutical giant Pfizerencountered a series of tough questions about the effectiveness of his Covid vaccine on the sidelines of the ongoing World Economic Forum meeting, but he repeatedly ignored the questions and a video about it went viral.
A Rebel News reporter was seen asking many uncomfortable questions of the Pfizer CEO. Among the questions, he asked the CEO why the manufacturer kept secret the fact that its vaccine did not stop the transmission of the virus.
The Pfizer chief repeatedly dodged these questions, only to say “Thank you very much” and “Have a nice day.”
In the video, the reporter could be heard saying, “You (Pfizer) said it was 100% effective, then 90% effective, then 80% effective, then 70% effective, but now we know that vaccines don’t don’t stop the transmission. Why are you keeping this a secret?”
The journalist continued to follow the Pfizer boss even though he did not ask for a response. In another question, he was heard asking if it was time to apologize to the world and reimburse countries that bought vaccines that didn’t work.
Returning to the early days of the start of the vaccination campaign, the American pharmaceutical company Pfizer has requested a bond that will exempt it from any legal action in the event of adverse effects of the vaccine.
India’s Minister of State for Information and Technology Rajeev Chandrasekharattaching video of the Pfizer CEO’s awkward meeting with the reporter in Davos, tweeted, “Just to remind all Indians that Pfizer tried to bully the Indian government into agreeing to the terms of compensation.”
The minister also targeted Rahul Gandhi, P Chidamabaram and Jairam Ramesh of Congress, saying the trio continued to champion the administration of foreign vaccines in India.
“People are surprised that only three vaccines are available in India: Covishield, Covaxin and Sputnik Out of the three, you can cancel Sputnik as only a small amount was imported in the early days,” Congress veteran Chidambaram tweeted on December 27, 2021.
“We are left with 2 vaccines thanks to the PROTECTIONIST policy of the Modi government. Pfizer, Moderna and other WHO approved vaccines are kept out of India under one pretext or another. That is why we don’t have enough vaccine to give 2 doses to the 94 crore adult population.”
Notably, India’s vaccination campaign against Covid was on the whole achieved through locally manufactured vaccines.
