PH panel OKs Chinese vaccine for clinical trial - FDA

PH panel OKs Chinese vaccine for clinical trial - FDA”

Early trials of the latest vaccine on 100 volunteers were successful, Putin said.

Domingo said that there is a possibility that the clinical study for Sinovac may begin in November given this development from the vaccine experts panel.

Russian Federation has also promoted its Sputnik V vaccine overseas, despite concerns about its effectiveness and safety. Apollo Hospitals have been strengthening its vaccine cold chain for supply and gearing up all Apollo facilities for efficient and fast administration with the highest safety standards, for upto 1 million doses per day.

Russian Ambassador to Indonesia Lyudmila Vorobieva said her government had contacted the Health Ministry about the possible distribution and use of the Sputnik V vaccine and was now waiting for its response.

In April, President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo held a telephone conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin discussing efforts to step up cooperation in dealing with the coronavirus pandemic.

Putin approved Russia's first Covid-19 vaccine, named Sputnik V in a nod to the Soviet launch of the world's first satellite, on August 11. Just like on Wednesday, Putin personally broke the news on national television and said one of his daughters had already been vaccinated, experienced slight side effects and developed antibodies. As soon as the trials of the two medications are completed and after approval by the World Health Organisation, vaccination of the entire population will begin.

Sputnik V has been made available to people in at-risk groups, such as such as doctors and teachers, while tests are ongoing.

Chinese President Xi Jinping has also previously declared that Chinese vaccines would be made a "global public good".

Speaking at this year's U.N. General Assembly, Putin offered to provide the Sputnik-V vaccine to U.N. staff for free. He described the offer as a response to popular demand: "Some colleagues from the United Nations have asked about this, and we will not remain indifferent to them".

With a second wave of coronavirus cases sweeping Russian Federation and threatening to overwhelm hospitals, the Kremlin also needs the vaccine domestically as it battles record daily infection rates while seeking to avoid a repeat of a nationwide lockdown in the spring that battered the country's economy. It has also reported over 23,000 deaths. On Wednesday, Russia confirmed more than 14,000 new cases for the first time since the start of its outbreak in the spring.
