Indian Media Criticizes Pfizer After Ivermectin Success

A media company in India are ramping up criticism of COIVD-19 vaccine suppliers following the nation’s success at treating the virus with Ivermectin. In a recent report, Indian television channel WION claimed Pfizer is maximizing revenues by selling COVID-19 vaccines to developing nations on often predatory terms.

“What happens when vaccine manufacturers starts bullying? Governments are silenced, supplies are hoarded and profits take precedence over saving lives.”

The channel cited a separate report by Public Citizen that detailed Pfizer’s distribution agreements in emerging markets. WION found those contracts give up power to some government authority to Pfizer.

“Practically anything that a sovereign government owns — foreign bank accounts, foreign investments, commercial property, state-run airlines, even oil companies — Pfizer can takeover any or all of these from a government. Basically everything happens in Pfizer terms once a country decides to buy its vaccine.”

— Palki Sharma, foreign affairs reporter – WION

WION’s report went on to describe Pfizer’s actions as having long-term political, economic and social risks to developing countries.
