Bern (Switzerland). Albert Bourla, CEO of US-based pharmaceutical giant Pfizer, faced several tough questions about the impact of the Covid vaccine during a meeting of the World Economic Forum. He ignored the repeated questions and a video on this went viral. A reporter from Rebel News was seen asking several uncomfortable questions to the CEO of Pfizer. Among questions, he asked the CEO why the manufacturer kept secret the fact that their vaccine did not stop the transmission of the virus.
The Pfizer chief repeatedly avoided these questions. He said, “Thank you very much” and “Have a nice day.” In the video, the journalist can be heard saying, ‘Pfizer said it was 100 percent effective, then 90 percent, then 80 percent, then 70 percent, but now we know vaccines don’t stop the spread. Why did you hide that fact?’ In another question, the CEO was asked whether the countries who bought ineffective vaccines would be given refunds? Will you apologize to the world now?
Going back to the early days of the vaccination campaign, US-based pharma company Pfizer sought an indemnity bond that would exempt it from legal claims in case of any adverse effects from the vaccine. India’s Minister of State for Information and Technology Rajeev Chandrasekhar tweeted, attaching a video of the Pfizer CEO’s uncomfortable conversation with a reporter in Davos, “Just to remind all Indians that Pfizer has accepted the terms of indemnification to the Government of India. Tried to intimidate to do.”
The minister also targeted Rahul Gandhi, P Chidambaram and Jairam Ramesh of the Congress and claimed that all three were pushing the case of foreign vaccines in India. Congress veteran Chidambaram tweeted on December 27, “People are surprised that only three vaccines have been made available in India. Of the three, Covishield, Covaxin and Sputnik, you can rule out Sputnik, as very small quantities were imported in the initial days.”
