The Indian factory making 6,000 syringes a minute

BBC News shows that one of the world's biggest syringe makers has ramped up production because of the huge demand for Covid vaccines. 

Rajiv Nath, who heads India's largest syringe factory, says it is now making around 6,000 syringes a minute.

But he says that's still not enough given that the world needs 10 billion syringes to vaccinate just 60% of the population.

He believes co-ordination between the vaccine makers, governments, the World Health Organization and syringe makers will be "very, very critical" going forward.
