Further praising India’s pharma industry, Bill Gates said “a lot of very important things have been done” in India and the country’s pharma industry is working to make the “coronavirus vaccine building on other great capacities that they have used for other diseases”.

While speaking for a Discovery Plus documentary titled ‘COVID-19: India's War Against The Virus’, Bill Gates pointed out that India faces a bigger challenge in curbing the health issues due to its gigantic size and urban areas, which are all densely populated. Further in his conversation, he confidently asserted that the Indian pharma industry is quite capable of supplying vaccines for coronavirus to the entire world.

"India has a lot of capacity there -- with the drug and vaccine companies that are huge suppliers to the entire world. You know, more vaccines are made in India than anywhere-- starting with Serum Institute, that's the largest,” Bill Gates said.

"But (there are) also Bio E, Bharat (Biotech), many others. They are doing work to help make the coronavirus vaccine, building on other great capacities that they have used for other diseases,” he added.

Further being optimistic about the fact that the pharmaceutical industry in India will be able to produce for the entire world, Bill Gates said “We need to reduce the deaths and make sure we are immune, which is how we end the epidemic."

Later in the documentary, Bill Gates emphasized on the Gates foundation's role. He also claimed that it has "worked for the Indian government on health issues like introducing new vaccines over the last decade; and so when COVID-19 came along, we stepped in and said you know where are the gaps, we have been funding work on detection and isolation."
