Russia has developed ‘first’ coronavirus vaccine

Moscow: Russia has developed the first vaccine offering “sustainable immunity” against the coronavirus, President Vladimir Putin announced Tuesday.

“This morning, for the first time in the world, a vaccine against the new coronavirus was registered” in Russia, he said during a televised video conference call with government ministers.

The country’s health ministry has given regulatory approval for the vaccine, developed by Moscow’s Gamaleya Institute, after less than two months of human testing, Putin said.

The move paves the way for mass inoculation even as the final stages of clinical trials to test safety and efficacy continue.
