The European Union will attack AstraZeneca with a second lawsuit over the provision of the COVIT-19 vaccine

A European Union spokesman said in a statement on Monday that the European Commission would take further legal action against AstraZeneca on its late export of the Kovit-19 vaccine on Tuesday.

Stephen de Kirsecker, a spokesman for the European Commission on Health, Food Safety and Transport, said: “The second case is about the merits of the case: has the commission asked the courts to rule on the terms of the Procurement Agreement (APA)?” Did AstraZeneca violate the APA. “

“There will be a preliminary hearing tomorrow. The court is hopeful that a deadline will be set for hearing and questioning the case,” he said.

On 26 April, the European Union announced that it was blaming AstraZeneca for allegedly violating the vaccine supply agreement, a dramatic extension of a long-running dispute over supply delays that hindered the launch of vaccines Was generated. Shot all over the continent.

27 European Union countries have ordered 300 million doses of the British-Swedish manufacturer Kovit-19 vaccine by the end of June, with an option to purchase an additional 100 million. But the supply of the vaccine, which has angered the terms of the deal, has been repeatedly halted.

De Gesemaker said in his statement on Monday that the first case was an emergency restraining order and the second case was a case of merit.

Commenting on the first case, he said, “The commission asked the court to provide adequate quantities of drugs to the company, as there is an urgent need for vaccines to continue vaccination in member countries.” The court will only conduct a preliminary assessment of the case and test whether there is a solicitation to provide a quantum. The trial is scheduled to begin on May 26. “

The Commission’s objective is the same in both cases, “to ensure that, through legal action, European citizens are provided with adequate amounts.”
