New Delhi: Billionaire philanthropist Bill Gates on Monday said that India is “very inspiring” as it has taken several steps to improve the health of its people in the last two decades.
“And now, India’s research and manufacturing will be critical to fighting COVID-19 especially when it comes to making vaccines at large scale,” he said.
Bill Gates yet made another announcement that COVID-19 vaccines will be available by the summer of 2021. He was addressing at the Grand Challenges Annual Meeting 2020, which is being held virtually.
“Researchers are breaking silos, 1,37,000 COVID-19 genomic sequences have been shared. First approved COVID-19 vaccines could be mRNA vaccines but has challenges. mRNA vaccine manufacturing is hard to scale, logistical challenges as it will need extensive cold chain,” he added.
