Coronavirus still infects the world. It is being said that the virus cannot be eliminated until the corona vaccine is introduced. So different trials are being conducted around the world regarding the corona vaccine, Bharat Biotech International Limited of India has presented its first look at the vaccine. Biotech is conducting Phase 3 trials of its vaccine. It plans to employ 1,000–2,000 volunteers in metropolitan areas such as Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad and Kolkata.
Furthermore, Pfizer Inc. of America and Biotech SE of Germany have applied to the Emergency Authority for their joint vacancy in the US. Here are the latest updates on the potential Covid-19 vaccine:
1. Hyderabad-based Bharat Biotech, whose vaccine candidate is known as Kovacsin, said in a statement to the Mint that aspiring volunteers who live near the testing site may meet with the lead investigator to take the test. People under the age of 18 who have previously tested positive for Kovid-19 are not eligible, the company said. Bharat Biotech launched three trials of Kovacsin earlier this week, the largest in India. Executive Director Sai Prasad told Reuters that the company is in touch with the third country in the world that has hit Corono, namely Brazil.

Pfizer and Biontech’s Desired Emergency Use Authority (EUA) came just days after both companies found their vaccine candidate BNT 1622 B2 to be vaccine 95% effective without any major safety concerns. In a video posted on the company’s website Friday, Pfizer CEO Albert Borla confirms that the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has applied to the Emergency Authority.

A total of 5,000 people are recruited from European countries and the US for drug phase trials known as AZD7442.
