Homegrown vaccine maker Bharat Biotech will launch its intranasal COVID-19 vaccine iNCOVACC, the first of its type in India, on January 26, the company’s chairman and managing director Krishna Ella announced on Saturday.

Ella stated, while interacting with kids at the India International Science Festival in Bhopal, that the Lumpi-ProVacInd vaccine for the lumpy skin condition in cattle will likely be released next month.
