On his news show Reality Check, NDTV’s Sreenivasan Jain said the earlier doses of Bharat Biotech’s indigenous Covid vaccine, Covaxin were of poor quality.
NDTV Editor Sreenivasan Jain, who has been caught spreading fake news on many occasions in the past, spread fake news about Bharat Biotech’s indigenously developed Covid vaccine Covaxin.
On Monday (August 2), he tweeted, “Breaking: the head of the Govt’s vaccine advisory panel Dr NK Arora tells me initial batches of Covaxin ‘were not of the right quality."
He tweeted this at 9:27 pm.
Dr NK Arora had discussed the quality check process of Covaxin in his programme Reality Check.
There was a social media protest about the fake news spread by Jain.
At 10:51 pm, Jain put out a clarification “As per Dr Arora, these doses from the initial batches with quality issues (manufactured at the Bangalore plant) were never sent out. The new batches have passed quality checks, he says.”
He added, “This was in response to questions on Covaxin falling short of targets. He said production was affected because of quality issues in initial batches, now remedied.”
Dr NK Arora very explicitly said on the show that he was discussing the initial quality check process at the Bharat Biotech plant in Bengaluru.
But, Jain tweeted it, saying there were quality issues with the initial doses of Covaxin.
