Three Government Medical Colleges (GMCs) of Punjab will participate in the Phase III trials of Covaxin, being tested by Bharat Biotech Ltd in collaboration with the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR). The trials are scheduled to commence from October 15.

This was stated by an official spokesperson after a virtual Covid review meeting chaired by Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh. The CM has directed the Medical Education and Research Department to ensure full care and strict adherence to all precautions during the trials for which the consent of the participants would be mandatory. He issued directions to ensure that poor persons were not pulled into the trials without consent, knowledge and understanding of the possible repercussions and dangers.— TNS
