Russian President Vladimir Putin has claimed that his scientists have developed a vaccine against the corona virus that has been successful against the corona virus. "The first vaccine against the corona virus has been registered this morning," he told government ministers. Putin said the vaccine had been tested on humans for two months and met all standards.
However, scientists are also concerned about the speed with which Russia claims to have a successful vaccine against corona. However, Russian President Vladimir Putin has announced on state television that the vaccine, developed at the Gomelia Institute in Moscow, is completely safe and has been given to his daughter. "I know this vaccine is very effective, it strengthens the immune system," Putin said. I repeat that it meets all safety standards. The Russian president has expressed hope that the vaccine will be developed on a large scale.
Russia's Ministry of Health has also approved the vaccine. Officials say they have plan to launch a large-scale vaccination campaign in October.
The World Health Organization (WHO) last week urged Russia to comply with international guidelines for developing the COVID 19 vaccine, citing concerns about non-compliance with safety standards. On Tuesday, the World Health Organization said it was in talks with Russian authorities to review the vaccine.
The Russian-made vaccine is not currently on the list of six vaccines released by the World Health Organization that have reached the third stage of clinical trials. At this stage of the trial, a drug is widely tested on humans. Despite rapid advances in vaccine development, most experts believe that no vaccine will be available before mid-2021.
