Cyrus Poonawalla is currently the 86th richest man in the world, as his wealth shot up to $1.5 billion, especially during the coronavirus pandemic thanks to his Serum Institute of India. His company manufactures some of the world’s most reputed vaccines, and no wonder the vaccine king has finally emerged as one of the fastest-growing billionaires in the world.

As of last month, Cyrus Poonawalla’s company has managed to sign a deal with AstraZeneca to manufacture 1 billion doses of the new coronavirus vaccine that will help cure a number of patients. It will be a great sight to see the curve flatten in India, all the more now since life is slowly getting back to normal.
