They’re also under phase 3 trials for approval on an international level but internally they’ve accepted their medicine completed already.

Well! Apart from that, Oxford University’s vaccine has successfully completed its phase 2 trials with positive results. They are trying to make the process fast-paced but haven’t been ignoring any protocols. Unlike in the case of Sputnik V which fast-paced their trails in June-July. Which was also questioned by many.

“We have started the phase-III trials of the vaccine (candidate Covishield). We will administer a dose to 150 to 200 volunteers,” said Dr. Muralidhar Tambe, Dean, Sassoon General Hospital.

The earlier trials were held in Pune as well in the Bharti Vidyapeeth Medical College and also KEM Hospital. It is to be noted that they’ve got the permission from the DGCI on 15th September 2020 for the initiation of the trials.

The pandemic has taken us all down on a global scale. And a vaccine has been the most sought after materialistic thing every human has been longing for right now.

And the lockdown has been taken down almost completely without the availability of a proper medication available. The reason being the economy have stated crashing heavily. Which makes the medication availability a very serious matter.
