‘Our vaccines have protected us better than vaccines in the West’: Biocon chief

Omicron neither overwhelmed our hospitals nor did we have much mortality, the Biocon chief said
Covid-19 vaccines have been safely used to vaccinate billions of people. The COVID-19 vaccines were developed after rigorous testing in clinical trials to prove the benchmarks for safety and effectiveness. The cumulative doses administered in India so far under the nationwide Covid vaccination drive has exceeded 190.20 crore.
Biocon chief Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw said that our vaccines have protected us better than the vaccines in the West that were largely mRNA vaccines. She wished that the same fact could be analysed and we should put forth the success of Indian vaccines in front of the world.
The world is witnessing a surge in Covid-19 cases, primarily due to the Omicron variant. Omicron neither overwhelmed our hospitals nor did we have much mortality, the Biocon chief said.
“I wish we could analyse our very comprehensive vaccination n testing data to tell the world that our vaccines have protected us better than the vaccines in the West that were largely mRNA vaccines. Omicron neither overwhelmed our hospitals nor did we have much mortality,” Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw tweeted.
