Covid19 Vaccine by ICMR and Bharat Biotech International Limited

The Indian Institute of Medical Research (ICMR) in partnership with Bharat Biotech International Limited will be launching its first-ever made-in-India coronavirus vaccine which may be launched by 15th August 2020. 

The letter stated that “This is the first indigenous vaccine being developed by India and is one the top priority projects which is being monitored at the topmost level of the Government. The vaccine is derived from a strain of SARS-CoV-2 isolated by the ICMR-National Institute of Virology, Pune. ICMR and BBIL are jointly working for the preclinical as well as clinical development of this vaccine.” 

It was further added by the Research body that they are looking for the launching of the vaccine for public health latest by August 15 after completion of all clinical trials. 

The communication further added that “BBIL is working expeditiously to meet the target, however, the final outcome will depend on the co-operation of all clinical trial sites involved in this project.”

The letter has directed the selected group to fasten clinical trials and that “non-compliance will be viewed seriously.” 

“Therefore, you are advised to treat this project on the highest priority and meet the given timelines without any lapse.” The letter stated.
