Germany's Sputnik V procurement talks stall - report

The negotiations between Germany and the developer of Russia's Sputnik V coronavirus vaccine have reached an impasse, BILD reported on Sunday, citing sources within the German government.

The main obstacle in the jab procurement talks is Russia's alleged inability to obtain sufficient materials to manufacture enough doses to honor its commitments to both Germany and India, the outlet claimed.

"Due to the ever-increasing quantities of other vaccines" on the market, Germany wouldn't need to rely on Sputnik V to meet its inoculation goals beyond July, the report concluded.
