Serum Institute of India, world’s largest vaccine producer by number of doses produced, headquartered in Pune, has stated that the vaccine for COVID-19 will not be readied before 2022.
Soon after the outbreak of COVID-19, drug makers across the globe are trying hard day and night to find effective treatments and vaccines to combat the novel coronavirus, which has been announced as “global health emergency” by World Health Organisation. Meanwhile, over 3,300 people worldwide have lost their lives while over 98,000 people have been infected by the virus.
Serum Institute of India, which is world’s largest vaccine producer by number of doses produced, and is headquartered in Pune, has stated that the vaccine for COVID-19 will not be ready before 2022.
It is the partnership that we have with Codagenix (a Biotechnology firm) in the United States which has this algorithm. We have a partnership with them, they have the rights globally for the vaccine. We have entered it into mice and primates with four different candidate vaccines to see which one would work the best and that is where we are at the moment. In two- month time, we hope to get some results on the animal studies and then based on the regulatory path we take and which countries give us the fastest way to enter into human beings, which will be a real challenge.
