Serum Institute of India (SII)’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Adar Poonawalla, on July 26, said his company would “keep more than enough” doses of the COVID-19 vaccine for the Parsi community.

Poonawalla was responding to a tweet from entrepreneur Ronnie Screwvala, in which the latter had proposed to have a “special quota” for Parsis, albeit on a “lighter note”.


“Yes, @RonnieScrewvala, we will keep more than enough for the community. Our production capacity of just one day will be enough to cover every Parsi on the planet...given the size of our community!” Poonawalla tweeted.
