Russia's Sputnik Vaccine Is Reported To Be 92% Effective Against COVID-19

Russia's Sputnik Vaccine Is Reported To Be 92% Effective Against COVID-19”

Russian Federation has contacted Germany to see if it can manufacture its Covid-19 vaccine there the day after clinical trial data showed that its Sputnik-V jab is 91.6 per cent effective.

"And besides that, (it) probably also confirmed the justification of the accelerated registration of this vaccine in the Russian Federation", he said, adding that the jab's safety was "proven".

"To what extent this is the case with Sputnik V is now up to the regulators to examine".

The developers of the Sputnik V vaccine are working collaboratively with AstraZeneca on a joint clinical trial to improve the efficacy of AstraZeneca vaccine.

The data is encouraging given the current situation when countries are scrambling to immunise their citizens against the pandemic amid Covid-19 vaccine supply shortage, yet the pandemic has infected more than 100 million, and killed more than 2.2 million people globally, according to a tally from Johns Hopkins University.

Sputnik V is registered in more than a dozen other countries including former Soviet republics as well as allies such as Venezuela and Iran, as well as South Korea, Argentina, Algeria, Tunisia and Pakistan.

On January 25, the Mexican president, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, announced, after a call with his Russian peer, Vladimir Putin, that Mexico had agreed to purchase 24 million Sputnik V vaccines.

Whether the European and national authorities approve a vaccine "is not a political decision but a scientific decision", he added.

"India is a key partner in terms of production of vaccine and we expect that there'll be a restricted emergency use order for the Sputnik V vaccine.this month or next".

To produce the vaccine a country has to have a set of equipment and consumables as well as to know the production technology. They said it was made and released in a hurry without any information.

While Moscow has aspirations for Sputnik V to increase its geopolitical clout, Peskov emphasised that "priority is given to Russia's domestic needs".

But beyond its capital and largest city Moscow, where Mayor Sergei Sobyanin estimated Saturday that some 300,000 people had already been vaccinated, Russian Federation has struggled with rolling out Sputnik V.

The Kremlin has been eager to tout its own vaccine in the countries that have been left behind as the United States and the European Union have hoovered up the vaccines produced on their soil to immunise their own population.

Mexico has more than 1.8 million known coronavirus cases and almost 160,000 deaths - the world's third-highest fatality toll after the United States and Brazil.

Russian Federation faces a population sceptical of getting vaccinated, with recent surveys showing only 38 percent of respondents were prepared to be inoculated against Covid. They said it is another vaccine to "join the fight" against the coronavirus.
