The Drug Controller General of India had recently approved two vaccines against the Covid-19 for restricted emergency use in the country, paving the way for a massive inoculation drive.

Covaxin, developed by Bharat Biotech, and Covishield, manufactured by the Serum Institute of India, have been given approval. While Bharat Biotech has developed Covaxin with a whole virion inactivated virus, SII has engineered Covishield with recombinant Chimpanzee Adenovirus vector virus.

As Covishield was granted emergency use authorization on January 2 while its Phase 3 trial is still underway, the Subject Expert Committee was criticized for granting approval before an interim analysis was conducted or efficacy data made public.


The IMA also appealed to all its members to actively participate in the Covid-19 vaccination drive so that the same becomes a success as well. Pixabay

Meanwhile, the IMA lauded the efforts of Indian scientists and researchers to come out with vaccines against SARS-CoV-2 stating that they have worked hard to make this a success.

India has been ranked 139 out of 149 countries in the list of UN World Happiness Report 2021.

According to the World Happiness Report 2021 which was released by the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network, Finland was once again crowned as the world's happiest country. India has been ranked 139 out of 149 countries in the list of UN World Happiness Report 2021. To make society happy, firstly it is really important to spread awareness on how it is okay to relax, chill and take a break. People tend to normalise overworking, which is so wrong. Of Course, we need a job to live and sustain ourselves but you shouldn't be working yourself to death, and the fact that this is seen as normal is really worrying. You spend more hours at work than you do awake at home, so if those hours are drenched in misery then sadness basically becomes the norm. A study from Gallup (2017) found that happier employees were more engaged, which resulted in improved customer relationships, and a 20 percent increase in sales.

Also, lowering down the crime level would act as a major factor towards a happy society. People who witness crimes, or come across evidence of a crime in their local area, can suffer anxiety and may feel demoralised or powerless. We should also teach them to stop judging people by materialistic things and accept everyone with all their flaws. Media plays an important role in making society happy because they have the power of reaching out to billions of people and helping them out through a solution-based approach.
