With over a hundred programmes focussed on developing a Coronavirus vaccine globally and 7 vaccines in human trials, medical research is underway at an accelerated pace to fight the COVID-19 pandemic. As countries race towards finding a vaccine, where does India stand with its medical research? Are the chances of finding a vaccine for the novel Coronavirus higher than those for SARS-CoV and MERS-CoV? What can be said about vaccination trials across the world, especially with speculations about China having found a vaccine? Regardless of whether India is successful in finding a vaccine or not, will it be a major producer of the same once it's found? What are Advance Purchase Agreements and what role do they play in the manufacturing process of a vaccine?
Kriti Kapur, Junior Fellow at ORF’s Health Initiative, in conversation with Dr. Gagandeep Kang, Professor, Dept. of Gastrointestinal Sciences at the Christian Medical College and Executive Director of the Translational Health Science and Technology Institute, discusses the potential timeline of finding a coronavirus vaccine and the efforts, both global and local, that are being made in that direction.
