COVID-19 is a contagious disease caused by the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Corona Virus-2, a single-stranded RNA genome. After its initial occurrence in, in November, 2019, in Wuhan, China, it has resulted in a worldwide pandemic. In India since early 2020 over 1,05,42,000 have been infected and over 1,52,000 have succumbed to it. A year after the first recorded case in India, the immunisation exercise against the disease kicked off on 16th January, 2021, with two vaccines: Covishield and Covaxin. Serum Institute of India in Covidhield has grafted the COVID-19 antigen onto an adenovirus. On the other hand the ICMR-Bharat Biotech candidate called Covaxin, is based on inactivated virus and represents a tried and tested technology. Despite the last-stage trial still being in progress, Bharat Biotech has also been given emergency use authorization .
