Shringla, who was the High Commissioner in Dhaka in the recent past, ruled out the media reports quoting Serum Institute of India regarding the ban on export of the virus vaccine, reports online portal sarakkhon.com
"There is no problem at all to provide vaccine to Bangladesh. As neighbour, Bangladesh will receive the vaccine produced in India from the very beginning," he added.
