A parliamentary panel presented its report on Covid-19 on Monday calling on the government to meet “all necessary and mandatory requirements” and complete “all phases” of trials before authorizing any vaccine for emergency use. He also added that “migrant workers were the most affected by the closure.”

The panel also said that Covid-19 has highlighted the “enormous disparity of infrastructure and services in public and private hospitals.” “Small animal trials, human trials must be conducted in a population of sufficient sample size … the Committee recommends that, if an emergency authorization is granted, the government should grant it with due consideration and caution, and this provision should be used in the rarest cases, ”said the home affairs panel in its report presented to Rajya Sabha’s vice president Venkaiah Naidu.

The observation is seen in the background of the movement by vaccine manufacturers, the Serum Institute of India, and Bharat BioTech’s request for emergency approval. The panel stated that “migrants, factory workers, daily wage earners were the most affected [by the lockdown]But he praised the response of states in establishing shelters and quarantine centers.
