America Helps India: Regarding India’s help, Dr. Andy Slavitt, Senior Advisor at the White House’s Kovid-19 response, said, “We are standing with India during this tragic rise.”
The New York Times said on Tuesday that covicin SARS-CoV-2 works by teaching the immune system how to make antibodies against the corona virus. Antibodies are linked to viral proteins, similar to the perceived spike proteins associated with the surface. This vaccine has been created by Bharat Biotech in collaboration with the National Institute of Virology and the Indian Council of Medical Research. Covaxin was approved for emergency use on 3 January.
Regarding India’s help, Dr. Andy Slavitt, Senior Advisor at the White House’s Kovid-19 Response, said, “We are standing with India during this tragic rise.” We are working on providing resources including raw materials for therapeutics, rapid testing kits, ventilators, PPE and vaccine manufacturing. He said that ‘CDC with a long history of working with India will deploy the strait team there to help the health efforts in the country.’
