The Ministry of Health decided to suspend the contract with Precise Medicines to obtain 20 million doses of the Indian vaccine Covaxin.
The decision comes at a time when signs of irregularities in the contract have been the target of Covid pandemic hearings in the Senate.
According to members of the ministry, the current decision calls for a suspension until there is a new opinion on the case. The folder, however, is already evaluating the possibility of canceling the contract.
