Amid the resurgence of COVID-19, the shortage of medical oxygen and essential drugs like Remdesivir have added to the woes of Indians.

The country reported a record 3,780 deaths in the last 24 hours, the highest daily toll since the pandemic began. With at least 13 states are reporting more than 100 deaths a day.

Meanwhile, many state governments, civic authorities and volunteers are updating the list of beds available in hospitals in real time. Most of these websites also real-time count of active cases, recovered cases, deceased cases, and confirmed cases.

COVID-19 Vaccine

Frequently Asked Questions

How does a vaccine work?

A vaccine works by mimicking a natural infection. A vaccine not only induces immune response to protect people from any future COVID-19 infection, but also helps quickly build herd immunity to put an end to the pandemic. Herd immunity occurs when a sufficient percentage of a population becomes immune to a disease, making the spread of disease from person to person unlikely. The good news is that SARS-CoV-2 virus has been fairly stable, which increases the viability of a vaccine.

How many types of vaccines are there?

There are broadly four types of vaccine — one, a vaccine based on the whole virus (this could be either inactivated, or an attenuated [weakened] virus vaccine); two, a non-replicating viral vector vaccine that uses a benign virus as vector that carries the antigen of SARS-CoV; three, nucleic-acid vaccines that have genetic material like DNA and RNA of antigens like spike protein given to a person, helping human cells decode genetic material and produce the vaccine; and four, protein subunit vaccine wherein the recombinant proteins of SARS-COV-2 along with an adjuvant (booster) is given as a vaccine.

What does it take to develop a vaccine of this kind?

Vaccine development is a long, complex process. Unlike drugs that are given to people with a diseased, vaccines are given to healthy people and also vulnerable sections such as children, pregnant women and the elderly. So rigorous tests are compulsory. History says that the fastest time it took to develop a vaccine is five years, but it usually takes double or sometimes triple that time.

As COVID-19 positive cases spread rapidly in the second wave creating a rush for hospital beds, social media groups, including WhatsApp, have been flooded with very specific requests by COVID-19 patients — for oxygen cylinders, the drug remdesivir, hospital beds, and plasma donations.

Thanks to good Samaritans all over India, and NGOs have also started providing leads to the needy on social media platforms. In the past week alone, there has been a flood of posts on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram looking for resources such as the availability of beds in hospitals, oxygen supply, plasma from recovered patients, important medicines and more.
