India's vaccine manufacturer Bharat Biotech has announced that it has made an effective vaccine on the corona virus. The government has also approved clinical trials of the vaccine.

30th June, 2020

India's leading vaccine manufacturer Bharat Biotech has announced that it has made an effective vaccine 'Kovaxin' (COVAXIN) on the corona virus. With this, the first and second phases of human trials have also been approved for the country's first vaccine effective on Corona. Bharat Biotech said in its official statement that it has prepared it in collaboration with the Indian Council of Medical Research, ie ICMR and the National Institute of Virology (NIV).

The drug regulator Central Drugs Standard Control Organization (CDSCO) and the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare have approved phase-1 and phase-2 human clinical trials of this indigenous vaccine. The company said in its statement that the vaccine will start testing on humans from next month. The company also said that the corona virus strain (SARS-COV-2 strain) was isolated at NIV in Pune and later transferred to Bharat Biotech.

Bharat Krishna Biotech Chairman and MD Dr. Krishna Illa said, 'We are proud to announce Kovid-19, India's first indigenous vaccine Kovaxin. The collaboration of ICMR and NIV in preparing it was remarkable. CDSCO's proactive approach was helpful in getting its testing approved. ' Efforts are underway all over the world to prepare Kovid-19 vaccine. No one has been successful yet. However, some companies have reached the stage of human testing of the vaccine.

Earlier, the company had submitted the results of pre-clinical studies to government institutions. Human clinical trials will be started across India, according to news agency IANS. Dr. Krishna Alla said that our R&D and manufacturing teams worked tirelessly in deployment of technologies. Undergoing national protocols, the company continued its rapid work in completing extensive pre-clinical studies, which have also had excellent results.

Meanwhile, more than 100 prominent personalities around the world, including 18 Nobel Prize winners, have called on the global community to make the Corona vaccine available to the world. These celebrities include Desmond Tutu, Mikhail Gorbachev, Malala Yousafzai, George Clune, Thomas Bach and Andrea Boselli. Not only this, former presidents, politicians as well as world famous artists and international organizations are also involved in this campaign.
