FRANKFURT (Reuters) -Merck KGaA on Wednesday said that U.S. regulations that give priority to U.S. government contracts to purchase COVID-19 vaccines are a challenge as it seeks to meet soaring demand for its lab equipment and supplies across the globe. She said U.S. law required that a preference be given to so-called rated state orders for COVID-19 programmes over any other orders.
