Very good result
Why is that every alternate day an article praising Bharat Biech pops up on your app?
Ok fine. Covan development financed by GOI, why its selling price is more than Covisheild? There is no article on that.
I wish someday we will have a data showing how much of people who took this vaccine were prected. That shouldn't be a big task and the results will surprise all. My city just gave this one and the results are not good amongst the people I know

Why did Brazil cancel its contract worth $320 million with Bharat Biech? Because Bharat Biech tried to bribe the Brazilians to let them sell their vaccine. As a doctor I find this company a fraud and never recommended it to anyone. Even WHO is not giving approval to Covan. 90% of Indians have used Covishield. What is the Telugu guy from Bharat Biech hiding? Approval for usage was given before data from phase 3 trials was published.
BJP vaccine is doing wonderfully well. Great job BJP
Brazil's suspension of purchase contract with BB is like hitting their own legs with an axe. This kind of result is awesome for controlling covid.
Allegations of kick back.
There are liars, big liars and biggest liars.

Bharat Biech is owned by a TELUGU guy and it's difficult to trust these Telugu people because they are into lot of SCAMS like Nigerians.
Good news indeed. Atmanirvar Bharat.
What about apptoval from WHO and acceptance for international travel
It is best even better then PFIZER and imported similar vaccines
Why do you give too much publicity to covan and ignore covishield
Indian vaccines are garbage
Every other day vaccine efficacy is changing , to be honest ant 1st generation vaccine is not up to the standard , it takes many years to develop test and show actual data for a effective vaccine .
