A ray of happiness has finally struck some light in this dark era of pandemic. Aiming to launch an indigenous Covid-19 vaccine by August 15, the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) has written to select medical institutions and hospitals to fast-track clinical trial approvals for vaccine candidates.

The selection of the day is in itself a proud day for Indians and launching vaccine on the same day is an icing  on the cake, says a letter of ICMR to institutions involved in developing the vaccine for the viral infection.

It is envisaged to launch the vaccine for public health use latest by August 15 after completion of all clinical trials.”
