Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas)--To date, Japan has seen more than 628,000 confirmed COVID-19 cases, and more than 10,700 deaths. Although it has secured the largest amount of COVID-19 vaccines in Asia, Japan has inoculated only 2.2% of its population so far, the slowest among wealthy countries, according to Reuters. The government aims to inoculate 36 million elderly Japanese by July.

Japan's Pharma-Bio Industry is ramping up manufacturing capabilities in the global fight against COVID-19. Industrial Info is tracking five projects in Japan's Pharmaceutical & Biotech Industry related to the manufacturing of vaccines and other products to fight COVID-19, with a total investment value of more than $225 million.

Among the projects are the construction of active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) facilities and upgrades to mask-production plants. Subscribers to Industrial Info's Pharmaceutical & Biotech Project Database can click here for a list.
