Coronavirus vaccine: China approves Covid-19 vaccine for military use

"The collaboration with ICMR and NIV was instrumental in the development of this vaccine".

Also, the early data just suggests that the vaccine may work; to completely confirm its efficacy, the shot has to pass through the Phase 3 trial with thousands of volunteers.

In a statement, the consortia said, the Drug Controller General of India - CDSCO, Ministry of Health & Family Welfare has granted permission to initiate Phase I & II Human clinical trials after the company submitted results generated from preclinical studies, demonstrating safety and immune response.

According to medical journal The Lancet there have already been more than 1,000 clinical trials on dozens of pharmaceutical treatments for the virus but no effective medical intervention has yet been found.

Of the front runners, AstraZeneca's experimental Covid-19 vaccine is probably the world's leading candidate and most advanced in terms of development, the WHO's chief scientist said on Friday. Advertisement The development comes after Bharat Biotech showed the results of pre-clinical studies of the potential vaccine, ensuring safety and immunity response. "Our R&D and manufacturing teams worked tirelessly to deploy our proprietary technologies towards this platform", the note by Bharat Biotech quotes Dr Krishna Ella, Chairman and Managing Director of the company, as saying.

Bharat Biotech said it accelerated objective in completing the comprehensive pre-clinical trials, which were expedited through national regulatory protocols. The vaccine was developed at Bharat Biotechs BSL-3 (Bio-Safety Level 3) high containment facility, which is located in the Genome Valley.

IPhone 12 Won't Include a Charger or EarPods
Kuo, as per the report, has also said that Apple is expected to include a new 20W power adapter in the box with both iPad models. Last week images of a 20W iPhone charger leaked , suggesting Apple meant to ship the iPhone 12 with a more powerful adapter.

"Our ongoing research and expertise in forecasting epidemics has enabled us to successfully manufacture a vaccine for the H1N1 pandemic".

That would be a huge scientific feat and there are no guarantees it will work, correspondents say.

As the world deals with the novel coronavirus pandemic, China National Biotec Group (CNBG) has announced a major milestone in the effort to develop a vaccine for the deadly respiratory disease.

Brazil-which trails only the U.S.in terms of total reported COVID-19 cases and deaths-will produce around 30 million doses of the vaccine, with roughly half that amount available by December, UPI reported.

Apart from Bharat Biotech, Zydus Cadilla is working on two vaccines, while Biological E, Indian Immunologicals, and Mynvax are developing a vaccine each.
