New Delhi: Bharat Biotech executive chairman Krishna Ella informed on Sunday that the company shipped three lakh doses of its intranasal COVID-19 vaccine to certain hospitals a couple of days ago, PTI reported.

Speaking at an event where a bilateral agreement was signed between the University of Wisconsin (UW)-Madison Global Health Institute (GHI) and the Ella Foundation for the establishment of the first-ever UW-Madison One Health Centre in Bengaluru, he said, "We dispatched three lakh doses of the world's first intranasal COVID-19 vaccine to some hospitals two days ago."

Ella added that some countries and international agencies are approaching their company to buy the vaccine, which is administered through the nasal passage.

Further, he said that UW-Madison One Health Centre in Bengaluru is scheduled to become operational in 2023 end. It will further the development and production of vaccines in India.

Establishing the UW-Madison Global One Health Centre holds great significance as it will advance global health through research, education, and community engagement by facilitating student and faculty exchanges, research and education."

Later, UW-Madison GHI director Jorge Osorio said, "We are energised by the opportunity to partner with the Ella Foundation to bring UW knowledge and expertise to expand innovative and impactful health initiatives outside Wisconsin to India."
