COVID-19: Russia First to Officially Approve Vaccine


- Advertisment -spot_img

President Vladimir Putin of Russia has approved a regulatory vaccine for COVID-19, which took less than two months to manufacture and finalize testing on humans. Putin added that his country is proud to be the first in the world to grant regulatory cure for the novel virus.

While speaking at a government meeting on a national TV, Putin expressed that Moscow’s Gamaleya Institute developed the vaccine and that it has passed all clinical tests and thus, very safe for use. He further added that the drug had been administered to one of his daughters who had a brief temperature increase though, not tested positive for the virus yet. “I think in this sense she took part in the experiment,” Mr. Putin added.

“After the first injection her temperature was 38 degrees, the next day 37.5, and that was it. After the second injection her temperature went up slightly, then back to normal.”

Putin has two known daughters; Maria Vorontsova and Katerina, but the president did not explicitly mention which of the two was given the vaccine. He barely openly talks about them and the media knows little to nothing about them. It is clear that he enjoys keeping absolute secrets about his family and personal life.

Despite Russia’s effort to set this world record, experts say that effective vaccine to cure COVID-19 would not be available on regulatory dosage until mid-2021. Similarly, more a 100 vaccines from different countries around the globe are in early developmental stage, and some, currently undergoing clinical trials.

In another report, it is gathered that the Russian officials announced the approval of this vaccine just before the completion of trial study (phase-three trial) by Gamaleya Institute.

The Russian Minister of Health, Mikhail Murashko said today Tuesday that the vaccine “proven to be highly effective and safe”, hailing it as a big step towards “humankind’s victory” over Covid-19.
