COVID-19: Russia has developed a vaccine-Putin


President Vladimir Putin announced on Tuesday that Russia has developed the first vaccine against the coronavirus, COVID-19.

According to President Putin, this is the first vaccine offering “sustainable immunity” against the novel coronavirus.

In a televised video conference call conducted with government officials, Putin revealed further that one of his daughters was a beneficiary of the vaccine, implying that “she took part in the experiment”.

Last week, the World Health Organization urged Russia, which has been making rigorous efforts to develop a vaccine against the virus, to ensure that it follows laid-down guidelines.

The WHO also advised that Russia follow through all stages necessary to develop a safe vaccine.

Earlier this month, Russia announced that it projected launch of mass production within weeks and consequently, hoped to roll out several million doses of the vaccine each month come 2021.

In a bid to develop a vaccine that can protect the lives of billions of people globally, the pandemic has seen an accelerated mobilisation of funding and research.
