The Drugs Controller General of India has granted emergency-use permission to the single-dose Sputnik Light COVID-19 vaccine, informed Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya on Sunday.

Mr Mandaviya said that this decision will further strengthen the nation’s collective fight against the pandemic.
