The country is going to achieve a milestone soon. The world health organization is likely to authorize Indian originally developed ‘Covaxin’ by Bharat Biotech for an emergency use listing. According to WHO guidelines, an emergency use listing is a practice where new products are permitted to be in use during public health emergencies like a pandemic outbreak.
The World has witnessed a disastrous situation past year which caused an increase in mortality rate, mental distress, anxiety, and people are still coping with it. The Covid Outbreak was an emergency situation for humanity but thankfully many organizations have successfully procured the solution to withstand the pandemic. Presently most of the population is already vaccinated and many will soon.
Indian Covaxin Approved For Emergency Use By WHO
WHO Chief Scientist Soumya Swaminathan stated that the vaccine looks favorable in Phase 3 and is soon likely to be approved by August. All indications prove the vaccine to be efficient and the safety measures meet the WHO standards. They have gone through all variants and sequenced 60 percent breakthrough of the variant was seen in the trial. Although the vaccine indicated less efficiency for the delta variant, the overall effectiveness of Covaxin was high enough to reach the benchmark. Many celebrities and leaders including Indian prime minister Narendra Modi have been vaccinated by Covaxin.
The status of the Covaxin approval is still unidentified but Swaminathan made a statement that “the pre-submission meeting was held on June 23 and the data package is currently being submitted and assembled. Next, it will be evaluated on basis of Safety, Quality, Manufacturing practices, and other Parameters. Hopefully, the decision for emergency use listing will be issued soon by mid to late August”.
As per trial reports, the native-produced vaccine is found to be 77.8 percent effective for symptomatic Covid. The vaccine validated 93.4 percent potency against acute symptomatic Covid 19 variant and 63.6 against asymptomatic covid strain. While some countries have approved Covaxin, many others are likely to wait for an official approval statement by WHO. The emergency use will expectedly encourage other nations to import Covaxin, manufacturing it overseas, and ease traveling for individuals jabbed with Covaxin.
