New Delhi: Recently a claim was made about the coronavirus vaccine. The claim was that the Corona vaccine trial would begin in India on 7 July and that the Corona vaccine would be launched by 15 August. On this claim, the Health Ministry has said that the vaccine trial has not started yet. However, the Ministry has said that the sites where the vaccine trials are to be conducted have been selected. The trial will also be started soon.
Recently it was said that the trial will start on July 7 and the corona vaccine will be launched by August 15. In response to a query on the truth of this, OSD of the Ministry of Health, Rajesh Bhushan said, ‘Currently there are more than 100 vaccine candidates all over the world, who are at different stages of trials. It is a matter of satisfaction for India that there are two such vaccine candidates, which are completely indigenous. One is the vaccine of Bharat Biotech International Limited and the other is the vaccine of M / s Cadila Healthcare. Bharat Biotech International Limited is developing the vaccine in collaboration with ICMR.
The corona vaccine being prepared in the country by August 15 has been talked about for some time. However, many experts have also questioned this. Today the country’s Health Ministry tried to clear the situation by taking it. The ministry has said that the vaccine trial has not started yet. However, the Ministry has said that the sites where the vaccine trials are to be conducted have been selected. Trial will also be started soon. But no launch date has been given by the ministry.
‘Trial has not started yet, it will be soon’
Rajesh Bhushan further said, ‘Both these vaccines have completed the Animal Toxicity Studies. These studies are on rats, guinea pigs, and rabbits. Data from both these studies are shared with the Drugs Controller General of India (DCGI). Only after this, both the phase-one clinical trials have been allowed. Where the trial of Phase-1 and Phase-2 will be done, it has also been decided. But the trial has not started yet. We hope that trials will start soon and as soon as the results come, they will be put before everyone.
