Russian authorities say that the first batch of covid-19 vaccine would be ready for doctors within 2 weeks. “Data on preclinical and clinical studies will be published in coming days, possibly by Monday”, news agency reported citing health minister Mikhail Murashko.
In homage to world’s first satellite, the vaccine launched by the Soviet union will be called Sputnik 5. It has however not yet completed its final trial. People hence assume a nation wide testing to be dangerous.
In reply to all this criticism health minister stated, “The vaccine is based on a platform on which six products have already been made.”
Meanwhile Vietnam has registered to buy a Russian covid-19 vaccine, the state television reported.
