Prime Minister Narendra Modi said Bharat Biotech, a city-based pharmaceutical company, is closely working with the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) to create an indigenous Covid vaccine for India.

"At the Bharat Biotech facility in Hyderabad, was briefed about their indigenous Covid vaccine," Modi tweeted.

He congratulated the scientists working on the vaccine for the progress they made in the trials so far.

Modi met with the company officials in a conference hall and deliberated on the progress made in bringing out a vaccine.

Modi was on a tour of three cities - Ahmedabad, Pune and Hyderabad -, on Saturday to check on the Covid vaccine progress.
