Even as anxiety grows over the new coronavirus strain that popped up in the UK having made its way into India, there is some encouraging news from London. On Wednesday, the British regulator of healthcare products granted emergency-use approval to the covid vaccine developed by Oxford University with AstraZeneca. This is the one that Pune-based Serum Institute of India has already produced in bulk, a claimed 50 million doses, and has been conducting clinical trials among Indians for.

It’s better to have all jabs fully tested here for safety and efficacy than to rush them out.
