India's largest hospital chain says it's ready to administer one million coronavirus vaccine doses a day, but the government has not made clear how vaccines will be distributed and whether private health-care networks will be involved.


New Delhi, 10 December 2020

Apollo Hospitals Enterprise Ltd. has so far trained 6,000 staff to give out jabs across its network of 71 hospitals, hundreds of clinics and thousands of pharmacies, according to Managing Director Suneeta Reddy, who said the company's talks with officials in New Delhi had yet to provide any firm guidance. "We need to know if the government wants to handle the whole thing or allow the private sector to do it," Ms Reddy said in an interview Tuesday. "The issue here is how can we double the amount of people that can be vaccinated," she said from Chennai, adding that Apollo is ready to help in any capacity. The government "can do it, but it will take time."
