Emer­gent tossed near­ly 400M Covid-19 vac­cine dos­es in Bal­ti­more de­ba­cle, House re­port says

The ex­act num­ber of dos­es lost in the Emer­gent BioSo­lu­tions mishap at its Bal­ti­more plant has nev­er been ex­act­ly de­ter­mined. But a re­cent re­port from the US House se­lect sub­com­mit­tee on the coro­n­avirus cri­sis says that the com­pa­ny might have de­stroyed near­ly 400 mil­lion dos­es of Covid-19 vac­cines af­ter fail­ures to meet qual­i­ty stan­dards.

The re­port came to the de­ter­mi­na­tion via re­quests for in­ter­nal com­mu­ni­ca­tions be­tween Emer­gent ex­ec­u­tives, which the sub­com­mit­tee al­leges in­clud­ed ef­forts to hide ev­i­dence of con­t­a­m­i­na­tion in “an at­tempt to evade over­sight from gov­ern­ment reg­u­la­tors.”
