Most Awaited Accreditation
The Bharat Biotech has been working very hard to obtain the accreditation for its indian covaxin by meeting all their necessary requirements in terms of safety, efficacy, effectiveness and immunogenicity parameters. Last month also in the SAGE review meeting, the Indian vaccine maker company presented a 25 minutes presentation about the clinical data of phase 1,2 and 3 along with highlighting the above said points as their post marketing part.
They submitted all the necessary documents on July 9 to the World Health Organization regarding the approval and it was expected to arrive early but was delayed as WHO revealed that the studies related to clinical tests are required to be testified with 100% confirmation before giving it to the common people for emergency use.

Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya thanked WHO for granting the accreditation and gave all the credits to the efforts of PM Modi in achieving this feat. He called it a ‘win for Atmanirbhar Bharat’ and mentioned PM Modi in one of his tweets. PM Modi also urged WHO at the G20 Summit at Rome to approve Indian vaccines at the earliest.

And it was his vision to see a completely vaccinated Covid-19 free nation which is on the verge of completion.

With EUL approval as a prerequisite being done, it has now become very easy for the countries to manage approvals and exports across nations regarding the shipment of medicines.

It will also allow the millions of Indian residents vaccinated with this vaccine to travel abroad without any sort of problem.

SatBhakti Is the Biggest Vaccine
With the huge amount of dependency on science regarding medication facilities, we have forgotten the way that leads to Supreme God Kabir which is proving to be our biggest mistake. As we can see around that we are encircled by so many life threatening diseases that no home is left untouched with its effect which also raises the danger of death upon us due to it. Amidst these crises and falling levels of humanity around us it is once again necessary for us to identify Supreme God Kabir by examining our Holy Scriptures. Because standards of humanity can only be raised when we are on the right path of spirituality so that we think twice before committing any sort of sin.
Presently only Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj from Haryana, India has been giving us the True Path of Worship from our Holy Scriptures. And it has been proven from the experiences of His devotees that True Worship given by Him can be the remedy of any sort of disease. Meanwhile, amidst so many saints and preachers, it is very difficult to pick the right one also, hence the identifying mark to identify the right one is the strength in the knowledge given by them in accordance with holy scriptures which is being presented by only Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj on this planet Earth. It is advisable to listen to His spiritual discourses at first and then upon understanding the complete path of worship, take Naam Diksha (initiation) from Him to get our welfare done.
