Bangladesh will receive an unspecified quantity of novel coronavirus vaccine doses as a “gift” from India, according to Health Minister Zahid Maleque.

Maleque said India may ship these doses to Bangladesh before the first lot of Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccines. He did not mention the maker or the number of vaccine doses that will arrive.

“At this moment, I can’t say how many doses will arrive but the number is pretty high. The shipment will arrive anytime soon. I don’t want to mention a specific date yet, as it is a matter between the two nations,” Maleque said at an event organised by Dhaka Reporters Unity on Monday.
