Covishield offers 93 per cent safety towards COVID-19 and a 98 per cent mortality discount, the federal government stated on Tuesday referring to a examine by the Armed Forces Medical College (AFMC) in the course of the second COVID-19 wave that was pushed by the Delta variant.
Addressing a press convention, NITI Aayog Member (Health) Dr V Okay Paul introduced findings of the examine which was carried out on 15 lakh medical doctors and frontline employees.
“Protection to the extent of 93 per cent was seen (in people who were administered the Covishield vaccine) and this was during the second wave which was driven by the Delta variant… also 98 per cent mortality reduction was seen,” he stated.
Reiterating the usefulness of vaccines in battling COVID-19, Mr Paul stated inoculation reduces an infection however it’s not a complete assure.
“No vaccine guarantees that infection will not happen but serious disease gets prevented and nearly eliminated. I urge you to please be vigilant, be careful, have faith in our vaccines and continue to be careful in the weeks and months ahead,” he added.
