Coronavirus Live Updates in India: India will bring not one, but several vaccines at the beginning of next year, the Center has promised. This was stated by Health Minister Harsh Vardhan at the cabinet meeting on Tuesday.
Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan is hoping for success in research and production of multiple corona vaccines early next year. “We are hopeful that more than several corona antidotes will be available by the beginning of next year,” Harsh told a cabinet meeting. Our expert groups have already started thinking about the production and distribution process of vaccines.
Clinical trials of 36 corona ticks are underway around the world. It is also heard that pre-clinical trials of 93 corona vaccines are underway. On Sunday, the Union Health Minister said, “In a country with a huge population like India, it is not possible to handle the situation by relying on the vaccine of a particular agency. So we are keeping open the way for the use of several Covid-19 antidotes.
There are at least seven separate studies in India to develop the corona vaccine. Companies like Bharat Biotech, Serum Institute of India, Zydus Cadila, Panacea Biotech, Indian Immunologicals, Minevax and Biological-E are working for this purpose.
Earlier, Harsh Vardhan had said that the initial plan of the Center, in the first phase, would be to vaccinate at least 20-25 crore Indians by July. In that case we need at least 40-50 crore vaccines. Harsh Vardhan wants Indians to get single dose vaccine. However, he said that in many cases the amount of antibodies needed to prevent the disease does not match the single dose.
