India has placed a temporary hold on all exports of the Oxford-AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccine, foreign ministry sources have told the BBC.

 

They said rising cases meant domestic demand was expected to pick up in the coming weeks, and so the doses were needed for India's own rollout.

 

Mr. Kwame Owusu Amponsah Daniel, the Dormaa Central Municipal Disease Control Officer, Monday said that the Directorate expects to vaccinate over 80, 000 people in the Municipality against Covid 19 infections by the end of the year.

Reacting to concerns about why vaccination centres were not set up at the other five sub-Municipalities for the exercise, his response was, "It's only two cases which were recorded outside Dormaa-Ahenkro at the Danyame and Amasu sub-Municipalities. We created more vaccination teams but there were limited numbers of the Covid doses received".
