Jan 30, 2021 14:52 IST

Serum Institute India chief Adar Poonawalla on Saturday announced that the company may launch a second coronavirus vaccine, Covovax, developed in partnership with American vaccine developer Novavax  by June. If approved, it could be India's third coronavirus vaccine. The US-based pharma firm's Covid jab was found to be 89.3 per cent effective in a UK trial. Pune-based Serum Insttute has already applied for local trials for the vaccine candidate in India.
