Bhubaneswar, Jan 3: Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Sunday said the drug regulator’s approval of two ‘Made in India’ coronavirus vaccines for emergency use is a matter of great pride.

“The entire nation is grateful to our scientific community for their hardwork & commitment in the face of adversity,” the Chief Minister said.

Eleven months after the first case of deadly coronavirus was detected in India, Drug Controller General of India (DCGI) V.G. Somani on Sunday approved two ‘Made in India’ vaccine candidates – Serum Institute of India’s ‘Covishield’ vaccine and Bharat Biotech’s ‘Covaxin’ for emergency use, that paved the way for its roll-out and administration to millions.
