Nepal suspended its vaccination campaign last month due to a lack of supply

Nepal on Tuesday gave conditional approval for the emergency use of the Russian Sputnik V Covid-19 vaccine, an official of the drug regulator said, as the country recorded the highest daily increase of infections in four months.

Nepal began its vaccination campaign in January with AstraZeneca vaccines provided by India, but suspended it last month following a lack of supply.

“Conditional permission has been granted for emergency use authorization of Russia’s Sputnik V in Nepal,” Santosh KC, a senior official in the Department of Drug Administration, told Reuters.
