The vaccine manufactured by Pakistan was verified in large-scale phase-III clinical trials that were held in five countries, together with Pakistan, in which more than 40,000 volunteers participated.
The consequences of the legal proceedings were distributed in February this year which inveterate the effectiveness and particulars of the vaccine. The vaccine is genuinely effective in the prevention of infection severity.
