SPC chairman says private sector can't bring COVID vaccine

State Pharmaceutical Chairman Dr. Prasanna Gunasena has stated that the private sector does have the capability to bring the COVID-19 vaccines in to the country.
He explained that so far, the companies that produce the vaccines have entered into agreements to provide vaccines to the respective governments or the state agencies in those countries.  
Therefore, the private sector is not in a position to import vaccines, he said.
