Oh yeah, it's smart to hang on to semantics. There may not be clinical trial "mode" but there is emergency use authorization. Maybe take time to read and understand instead of embarrassing yourself like this.there is no such recognised legal concept in vaccine or drug administration as offering a therapeutic intervention "in clinical trial mode". One is either conducting a controlled trial with all the usual ethical and operational checkpoints in place, or one is offering a validated intervention. Otherwise we reduce ourselves to quackery.
I'm sure someone among India's highly educated medical establishment will ask Somani for further clarification on his usage of this highly suspect phraseology.
