News Link: Peru Rejects AstraZeneca Vaccine Purchase Deal

The Peruvian government said on Thursday that it refused to sign a coronavirus vaccine purchase agreement with AstraZeneca PLC. The reason is it did not provide sufficient data from its studies and offered minimal amounts of inoculations.

Prime Minister Walter Martos said in a news conference that the government had asked AstraZeneca for data. But the firm had not sent the data from its vaccine studies with sufficient information.

“The other labs have caught up with us accordingly, however AstraZeneca has not,” Martos said.

They were offering us a very low quantity of vaccines compared with other laboratories. Competing companies are offering us large quantities at lower costs,” he said.

The number of new infections in Peru are less. Despite that, a second wave of the pandemic in the country is possible, Martos said. AstraZeneca planned to conduct trials in Peru.
