AstraZeneca will be able to deliver 2bn doses of its potential coronavirus vaccine this year and next, double the previous numbers, the company said during a vaccine summit hosted by the UK government.

The British company’s move will be possible thanks to deals with the Serum Institute of India and two Bill Gates-backed global health organisations.

AstraZeneca, which has already agreed to supply 400m doses to the US and British governments, had agreed terms with the Indian company, the world’s largest manufacturer of vaccines by volume, to supply one billion doses for low and middle-income countries.
