SC instructs the centre to provide complete data on vaccine purchases and asks when it will be able to complete vaccinations.

The Supreme Court ordered the government to produce full information on all COVID-19 vaccines acquired to date, including Covaxin, Covishield, and Sputnik V, on Wednesday.

According to the Court, the records should include: (a) all Central government procurement orders for all three vaccinations; (b) the quantity of vaccines ordered as of each date; and (c) the estimated date of supply.

The Supreme Court has also demanded the government to submit its plan for vaccinating the remaining population in phases 1, 2, and 3 with the public.

The Court also wanted to know what actions the federal government is doing to ensure that mucormycosis drugs are available.

In a suo motu case brought by the highest court to resolve difficulties surrounding the administration of Covid-19 in the country, a Bench of Justices DY Chandrachud, L Nageswara Rao, and S Ravindra Bhat announced the judgement.
