India is ready to mass produce COVID-19 vaccines to distribute across the country when scientists give the go-ahead to do so, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said in his Independence Day speech on Saturday.

"Not one, not two, as many as three coronavirus vaccines are being tested in India," he said from the ramparts of the Red Fort in the old quarters of Delhi.

"The country is also ready for mass production of those vaccines."

India is racing to produce an indigenous vaccine. Bharat Biotech International Ltd., an unlisted Indian vaccine maker, received regulatory approval to start human clinical trials for its experimental shot from India’s apex medical research body. News reports say the vaccine will be ready for stage 2 human trials in September. Zydus Cadila and Serum Institute of India also have vaccines under trial.

Once a vaccine is approved, “the road map for its production and distribution among Indians is also ready," Modi said.

The government is attempting to contain the spread of infection, which is developing at probably the quickest pace in world and including upwards of 60,000 case every day. It has the most affirmed cases after the U.S. what's more, Brazil and most elevated loss of life after U.S., Brazil and Mexico.
