Dr NK Arora, chairman of the Kovid Working Group, has made a big announcement on Zydus Cadila’s Corona Vaccine. It has been told that the trial is almost complete.
Amidst the crisis of Corona vaccines, big news has come related to the indigenous vaccine company Zydus Cadila. It has been learned that the trial of this vaccine is almost complete and in the next few months it can be started for children. This has been said by Dr NK Arora, chairman of the Kovid Working Group.
NK Arora said that the trial of Zydus Cadila’s corona vaccine is almost complete. Now in the end of July or in August, it may be started to be applied to the children of 12 to 18 years. At present, corona vaccine is being administered to people above 18 years of age in the country.
Let us tell you that before the third wave, the central government wants to vaccinate more and more people with corona. But vaccination can accelerate only when there is a large number of corona vaccines after the country. If Zydus Cadila gets approval soon after the trial results are good, it will provide some relief.
The company can soon apply for approval
Now on June 18, 2021, it was reported that Zydus Cadila can apply for approval for the emergency use of the corona vaccine ZyCoV-D in the next 7 to 10 days. At present, three corona vaccines have been approved for emergency use in India. This includes Covishield, Covaccine and Sputnik. In the third wave, more impact of corona can be seen on children. In such a situation, if children of 12 to 18 years of age start getting Zydus Cadila’s corona vaccine, then it will give relief.
Three doses in Zydus Cadila vaccine
This vaccine of Zydus Cadila is very different from other vaccines around the world. Actually, only two doses of most vaccines are applied, even if there are Covishield, Sputnik, Covaxin etc. But not two, but three doses of this vaccine of Zydus will be applied.
‘In the coming days, we will apply 1 crore corona vaccines daily’
NK Arora, chairman of the Kovid Working Group, further talked about the third wave. He said, ‘ICMR has done a study, in which it has been claimed that the third wave will come a little late. Meanwhile, we have 6-8 months to vaccinate people. In the coming days, our target will be to administer one crore corona vaccines daily.
