India has begun delivering Covid-19 vaccines by commercial drones, a government scientist has told the BBC. Dr Samiran Panda said drones were delivering doses in mountainous states in the north-east of the country. India aims to vaccinate all eligible citizens by the end of 2021 – but experts say the drive needs to pick up pace to meet the target. About 70% of the country’s eligible population have received at least one dose of a Covid vaccine, according to official data.
