COVID-19 vaccine: With three vaccine candidates, India to play major role in fight against coronavirus
Several Indian firms have already joined the race to develop an effective vaccine against COVID-19
At present, two vaccine candidates are at phase I and II clinical human trials in India
India with its "great track record in low cost drug manufacturing" will play a major role against coronavirus, believes Nobel laureate Peter Charles Doherty. "Given India’s great track record in low cost drug and vaccine manufacture, we expect that India will be a major player. This is, after all, the fastest way to return global economic activity," said Doherty.
