Washington: The World Health Organisation has said that monkeypox is a warning sign to the world and it also warns people to take care on its spread. The WHO chief scientist Soumya Swaminathan has given advice on this.
From many lab reports, it is clear that the vaccine for smallpox can also be used against monkeypox. We have different types of vaccines that belong to two or three generations. The countries might hoard the vaccines to use while at the time of an outbreak, she extended her concern.
She said that if the Indian Pharma Companies, including the Serum Institute gets permission to produce vaccines, India could supply it across the world. India is all set to produce vaccines. In such situations, India can guide the whole world.
India made a remarkable step in the production of Covid vaccines. WHO assures that India can act similarly in the case of monkeypox too.
