An ANI report states that social activists and lawyers came together to file the plaint against the Chinese leader for putting the lives of millions in danger by allowing the spread of the deadly disease.

The request to file an FIR was submitted in Palia Khan Police Station on March 31. A LiveMint report quoting IANS stated that police have admitted that several complaints have been lodged in this regard but will seek legal counsel before taking further action due to the international ramifications.

Notably, the highly contagious disease started in China's Wuhan city late in December 2019 and has killed more than 42,000 people across the globe already. Close to 9 lakh people have been infected, including nearly 1,600 patients who tested positive for COVID-19 in India.

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.
