Calling India's journey "very inspiring", Gates said: "And now, India's research and manufacturing will be critical to fighting Covid-19 especially when it comes to making vaccines at large scale".
In September, Dr Reddy's partnered with RDIF for conducting trials and supply of Sputnik V vaccine in India.
Hundreds of potential coronavirus vaccines are in various stages of development around the world, with shots developed in Russian Federation and China already being deployed before full efficacy trials have been done, and front-runners from Pfizer, Moderna and AstraZeneca likely to have final-stage trial results before year-end.
Talking about the challenges in vaccine development, he said mRNA vaccine is an area where many have seen "great promises".
CEPI itself is co-funding nine of the vaccines in development, including candidates from Moderna, AstraZeneca, Novavax and CureVac. This shall then be used for the Covid-19 Vaccine Global Access Facility (Covax Facility) and for other Gavi-funded immunisation programs, if necessary.
Brunswick council OKs trick-or-treating, encourages health and safety measures
That way children who are trick-or-treating don't have to get close to the residents to get candy. In Fort Dodge, trick-or-treating is designated for the night of Halloween on Saturday, Oct. 31.
He said that the foundation was working to ensure that developing countries have access to the vaccine "at the same time and at the same volumes" as wealthy countries. Gates had said that once the world has got the vaccine of Kovid-19, it is looking towards India for its mass production.
Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Missouri has licensed a single dose intranasal vaccine for coronavirus disease to Bharat Biotech, a leading vaccine and bio-therapeutics manufacturer.
Biologicals E has entered into a partnership to manufacture a vaccine candidate developed by Janssen Pharmaceutica, based in Beerse, Belgium.
On cooperation by the scientific fraternity, he noted that worldwide teams of scientists are collaborating with full speed on the vaccine clinical trials.
Sputnik V, the vaccine developed by the Gamaleya Research Institute of Epidemiology & Microbiology, was registered in August 2020 by the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation.
Charlie Brown Holiday Specials Will Now Only Be on Apple TV Plus
The TV special's addition to Apple TV + is part of a bigger deal that made Apple TV+ the home for all things " Peanuts ". Now, if you're already an Apple TV+ subscriber, you can stream the classic right now .
As per the deal, Russia's sovereign wealth fund will supply 100 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine to Dr Reddy's. Going further, trials are also expected to begin in Venezuela soon.
In the meantime, plans are afoot with the Indian players to ramp up capacities to cater to the increasing demand.
"Probably, the first approved vaccine for COVID-19 will be mRNA", he said, but added that the vaccine can not be counted on alone because it is very hard to scale up and has a logistical problem because it requires a proper cold chain.
Most firms look avers risking to establish dedicated facilities as the demand for mass-produced vaccines is not assured. Without cold storage units for vaccines, it's highly likely that developing countries will be the last to emerge from the pandemic.
U.S. govt files antitrust lawsuit against Google
Dipayan, how strong an argument is that when it comes to an antitrust case? So this is a long road we're going to be on. On that note , this week's lawsuit is also reminiscent of that which was brought against Microsoft in the late 1990s.
