The government has announced a $120 million grant for coronavirus vaccine research, Union health minister Harsh Vardhan said during the 8th BRICS STI ministerial meeting on Friday.
Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Harsh Vardhan attended the meeting via video-conferencing this year.
"Our government has announced $120 million grant for Covid-19 vaccine research. The grant doesn't cover actual cost of vaccine and its distribution expenses which will be made available as and when a vaccine is made," said Harsh Vardhan.
