The African country of Malawi has destroyed almost 20,000 doses of the Astra Zeneca vaccine, burning them. A sensational gesture, at a time when countries are still struggling to secure enough doses to cover the population.
But of course there is a reason, all those doses had expired on April 13, while they had arrived on March 26 as part of the 102 thousand vaccines produced in India by the Serum Institute, which produces for Astra Zeneca.
