Off The Cuff with Prof (Dr) Balram Bhargava

On this edition of ThePrint’s Off The Cuff, Prof (Dr) Balram Bhargava, Director General, ICMR, tells Editor-in-Chief Shekhar Gupta about why he decided to write the book ‘Going Viral: The Inside Story of Covaxin’, documenting the challenges of developing India’s indigenous Covid vaccine.
Bhargava also talks about the fascination of having isolated the virus in India for the first time, catching monkeys from forests for animal trials, and his one regret through the pandemic.
