Let us tell you that earlier the European Union had refused to recognize Kovishield and Covaccine for European passports, on which India had also said to ban European citizens. On this, the European Medicines Agency (EMA) had said that the application has not yet been received from the Serum Institute of India (SII), the manufacturer of the Kovishield vaccine.
