Actor Sonu Sood feels that the Covid preventive vaccine should be available to the needy for free, while adding that it is very important to put a cap on pricing.
“Every needy should get vaccine for free. Very important to put a cap on the pricing. Corporates and individuals who can afford should come forward to help everyone get vaccinated. Let’s do business some other time,” Sonu Sood tweeted on Wednesday. The actor had tested positive for coronavirus last week. He has currently isolated himself.
Sonu’s tweet came in reaction to a news piece that said Serum Institute will sell vaccines to states at Rs 400 per dose, private hospitals at Rs 600 and centre at Rs 150.
Meanwhile, the Union Government on Wednesday said there are more than 21.57 lakh active Covid cases in the country, which is double the maximum number of active cases India had last year.
The Centre on Monday announced that from May all adults above the age of 18 will be eligible to administer the vaccine doses. Amid this, the vaccine manufacturers are ramping the vaccination process in the country.
