More controversy keeps coming up regarding government’s procurement of Russia’s Sputnik V for Covid-19 vaccination in the country.
In a document sighted by Myjoyonline.com, the Health Ministry has contracted another supplier, S. L. Global Limited to purchase five million doses of the drug at $26 per dose.
Digging further into the 20-page document, the Ghanaian owned company serving as the intermediate is to deliver the vaccines in batches; one million doses each month until the fifth month when the country would have had the enough doses for inoculation.
Among other things, the agreement was that the purchase will not include transportation, storage and other charges; thus, the cost is likely to rise.
“None of the seller or any of its connected persons shall be subjected to any liability under this agreement or otherwise for any lose suffered by the buyer or any person whatsoever including patients, resulting to the use of the product,” part of the agreement read.
