AstraZeneca told CGTN it "aims to deliver in line with its contract" after a Reuters report said a European Union official claimed the drug maker would only ship less than half of the 180 million doses contracted in the second quarter.

The spokesperson did not give specific figures but added that AstraZeneca was "working to increase productivity in its EU supply chain" in order to hit the delivery target.
