Washington : Coronavirus continues to wreak havoc in the world, and everyone is waiting for the coronavirus vaccine. Research is underway in many countries around the world, with some companies claiming to have discovered the vaccine. The US-based company Moderna, which is at the forefront of vaccine research, has also claimed that its vaccine has been successful, claiming that it is 94 percent effective. The company has made this claim by analyzing the data collected after the test so far. This has raised Corona patient expectations.
Earlier, the US company Pfizer claimed that its vaccine was 90 percent successful. Moderna had tested the vaccine on 95 volunteers. Moderna is one of the few vaccine experiments in the world that has caught everyone’s attention.
This corona vaccine has been developed by the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the American biotech company Moderna.
Meanwhile, rich countries have started production of these vaccines. Due to the huge amount of money and the relatively small population, these countries have already started booking and storing the vaccines. The United States, Britain, France, Germany and Canada are said to have adequate supply of vaccines to the population.
So large populations and developing countries like India will have to work hard. So the situation in poor countries is even more dire. If India wants to give one dose to every citizen, it will cost at least Rs 130 crore or more. So its cost and production is going to be a big challenge.
It is not yet clear if these doses are given once or if they are given twice. Therefore, experts say that the fight against corona will have to be fought till at least 2024 and that much time will be required for vaccination.
