Coronavirus vaccine: The world is currently battling with the coronavirus epidemic. In the midst of all this, all eyes are now on the trial of the corona vaccine. Experts from all over the globe are trying their best to find the corona vaccine. Hundreds of scientists from several countries of the world are continuously working on developing the corona vaccine. Scientists from many countries of the world, including India, are engaged in developing vaccines in different places. There are currently more than 120 participants working on the corona vaccine (in the world). Do you know that 13 of these vaccines have reached the human trial phase? Five vaccines in China, 2 in Britain, 3 in the US, Russia, and one each in Australia and Germany are in the human trial phase. If scientists are successful in developing the vaccine, then people will not only get freedom from this epidemic crisis, but it will also save millions of lives.

Dr P Venkata Krishnan, Internal Medicines, Paras Hospital, Gurugram says that "there are four-five vaccines across the globe which are being developed and some of them are on clinical trials. Most of them will be on sale from October onwards. Currently, the oxford coronavirus vaccine is on phase-2 trial, and once it is done, then it will be ready for our use. Russian and China have also claimed about their vaccines, but they have not withstood the test of any international standards, so, the efficacy of these vaccines is still under doubts. Even the first made-in-India coronavirus vaccine with the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) is expected to launch on August 15, but we doubt whether it will be developed by then. A full-fledged vaccine will at least take a year to develop, which will be beneficial for the population across the globe.” Let us know where the process of human trial of corona vaccine has reached all over the world, including India.


  • Talking about India, two human trials of corona vaccine- Covaxin and Zycov-D are currently underway. A human trial of the country's first indigenous corona vaccine Covaxin is commencing from July 20 at the Indian Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS). Covaxin will be tested in AIIMS for 100 people in the first phase. Let us tell you that the human trials of vaccine have already started in the PGI of Patna AIIMS and Rohtak. Bharat Biotech and ICMR (The Indian Council of Medical Research) have jointly developed the country's first indigenous corona vaccine Covaxin. It is also reported to be launched on 15 August.
  • At the same time, India's second corona vaccine has been prepared by the country's renowned drugmaker Zydus Cadila. The human trial of ZyCov-D, the corona vaccine of Zydis Cadila, has begun. The company has involved 1048 people in human trials. Meanwhile, Zydus Cadila has said that it plans to complete its corona vaccine trial by February or March next year. Do you know that several other Indian pharma companies are currently making Corona vaccine? It which includes Bharat Biotech, Serum Institute of India, Zydus Cadila, Panacea Biotec, Indian Immunologicals Limited and Minwax. The Serum Institute of India also hopes to have the vaccine developed by the end of this year.


  • People around the world have maximum hope from Oxford University, UK. The corona vaccine ongoing here has the highest expectations from human trials. Scientists at Oxford University have created a corona vaccine called AZD1222, which is believed to be effective in preventing the corona epidemic. Scientists at Oxford University are confident that this vaccine will work against the coronavirus.

  • According to researchers, human trials of this vaccine are currently underway. Researchers believe they may be successful in developing the corona vaccine. Teams of scientists have discovered that this vaccine may provide dual protection against corona after early-stage testing on humans. Research has shown that the vaccine has induced the human body to produce both antibodies and to kill T-cells in the trial. 


Five potential corona vaccines are currently being developed in China. These are all in various stages of the trial. The Wuhan Institute is in the second phase. At the same time, for military use, the Beijing Institute of Biotech has been approved to move in the direction of the vaccine. Simultaneously, the Beijing Institute of Biological Products has reached the second stage of the potential vaccine. Meanwhile, Bangladesh has approved the testing of the third phase of a potential COVID-19 vaccine developed by Sinovac Biotech Ltd of China. 


The human trial of the corona vaccine in the US is nearing its final stages. Moderna (A biotechnology company) is preparing for the final phase trial of the coronavirus vaccine and prosecution can be started on July 27. According to Moderna, its test will be conducted in 87 locations in the US. It will involve 30,000 people for testing on humans. Let us know that the corona vaccine of Moderna is included in the world's most advanced vaccine.
