India’s Tally At 95.3 Lakh; Delhi Not To Impose Night Curfew For Now
India recorded 35,551 new COVID-19 infections, taking the country’s coronavirus case tally to 95.3 lakh, the government data shows. Up to 526 people also lost their lives to the highly viral disease in this period.
With this, a total of 1,38,648 people have lost their lives to Covid till now. Total active cases, or those receiving treatment for COVID-19, stood at 4,22,943, down nearly 5,700 in the last 24 hours.
For a vaccine to be allowed in India it must clear clinical trials here, and sources said neither Pfizer nor its partner companies had asked to hold such trials. This means that even if Pfizer partners with an Indian company now it will take some time for the vaccine to be available in the country.
However, the Drugs Controller General of India has “discretionary power to waive localised clinical trials for a vaccine”, sources said, but also noted that till date all vaccines cleared by the DCGI had at least cleared limited Phase 3 trials.
