Adar Poonawalla, CEO, Serum Institute of India, which has developed the COVID-19 vaccine Covishield with AstraZeneca and Oxford University, has said that the efficacy of the vaccine rises to 90% if the two doses are given two-three months apart.

Poonawalla said: One arm of trials, in which doses were given one month apart, was 60-70 percent effective. And there was another group of a few thousand patients where they gave a gap of 2-3 months between the two doses. That is where they found the efficacy to be 90 percent. If you look at other vaccines as well, the long gap you keep between the doses, the better their efficacy.

Poonawalla added: We found an excellent response below the age of 50 with one dose. We can say after a month, even with one dose, there is excellent protection, more than even what you find in a Covid-19 recovered patient. About 70 percent of people are fully protected with one dose, but the second dose is necessary for long-term immunity protection.

For the uninitiated, last month the government had increased the gap between two doses of Covishield on the recommendation of the National Expert Group on Vaccine Administration.

Special Court grants bail to ex-Home Minister Anil Deshmukh’s son Hrishikesh Deshmukh in money laundering case

Special Court granted bail to former Home Minister of Maharashtra Anil Deshmukh's son Hrishikesh Deshmukh on Monday. 

Anil Deshmukh

In a major development, Special Court granted bail to former Home Minister of Maharashtra Anil Deshmukh’s son Hrishikesh Deshmukh on Monday in an alleged money laundering case. Hrishikesh, who was arraigned as an accused in the chargesheet, was granted bail after a special court designated to hear cases related to the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) recorded his appearance.

He had filed an application through his advocate Aniket Nikam after appearing before the court and requesting the same to accept his appearance and grant him bail.

Hrishikesh also pointed out that the accusations in the ED’s case were confined to the alleged acts of omission and commission by his father in his capacity as the former home minister from January 2020 to April 2021. The plea also cited that the former home minister had already been granted bail in the case by the Bombay High Court. 

The court had in February this year issued summons to Hrishikesh after ED submitted its complaint (chargesheet) in the case.

Bombay High Court granted bail to NCP leader Anil Deshmukh in October this year in the same case. While Deshmukh had secured the bail in the ED case, he remains in custody in connection with the CBI case registered against him in April last year.
