By Zoila Palma: The European Commission is suing AstraZeneca claiming that the company has delayed delivery of the COVID-19 vaccines, Business Insider reports.
Meanwhile, the company has denied any breach of contract with the European Union.
The contract indicated that the company would use ‘best reasonable efforts’ to meet targets.
“AstraZeneca has fully complied with the advance purchase agreement with the European Commission and will strongly defend itself in court. We believe any litigation is without merit and we welcome this opportunity to resolve this dispute as soon as possible,” the company said in a statement.
However, the commission said that it began legal action on Friday, April 23 and the move is supported by member states.
According to the report, AstraZeneca had committed to deliver 180 million vaccine doses by June 2021, for a total of 300 million delivered from December 2020 to June 2021.
