India’s Health Minister said on Sunday that a potential locally developed Covid-19 vaccine should have its final tests completed in a month or two, raising expectations for rapid implementation in the second country with the highest number of infections in the world. .
The Indian Medical Research Council (ICMR), administered by the State, and the private company Bharat Biotech started this month the third testing stage of COVAXIN, in a process that will involve 26,000 volunteers. It is the most advanced Indian experimental vaccine.
“We are in the process of developing our native vaccines and completing our third phase tests in the next month or two months,” said Harsh Vardhan in a pandemic web conference.
He reiterated that the government’s plan is to immunize 200 million to 250 million Indians by July.
