Prithviraj Chavan questions ICMR plans for vaccine by Aug 15


Mumbai, July 4

Congress leader Prithviraj Chavan alleged on Saturday that the ICMR’s plans to launch a coronavirus vaccine by August 15 were aimed only at enabling the Prime minister to make a big announcement from the Red Fort.

The Indian Council of Medical Research said on Friday that it aimed to launch the world’s first COVID-19 vaccine by August 15.

“Why is the ICMR rushing for an unrealistic timeline of August 15 for Indian corona (virus) vaccine when global experts are giving a time frame of 12 to 18 months,” Chavan tweeted.

The Congress leader alleged that the ICMR was in a hurry to develop a vaccine only so that Prime Minister Narendra Modi could make a major announcement from the Red Fort during the Independence Day address.

The Union Health Minister should make a clarification in this regard, Chavan demanded. PTI
