EbeneInfo – GB – Russia wants to distribute questionable coronavirus vaccine to other countries: report


Russian President Vladimir Putin on Saturday said the country hopes to distribute its controversial Sputnik V coronavirus vaccine to other countries, according to Reuters

Russia announced a successful coronavirus vaccine in August, but Sputnik V was approved under questionable circumstances It was released before going through phase 3 trials In the United States, phase 3 is a requirement before a drug or vaccine can be tested and approved by the Food and Drug Administration

As Business Insider’s Susie Neilson previously reported, the results of early vaccine trials had not been peer reviewed Russia also did not reveal its methodology, shrouding Sputnik V even more in secrecy

The rushed timetable has led health officials to speculate that the Kremlin has forced vaccine makers to quickly shut down Sputnik V to gain a head start in the global race to cure the coronavirus

Speaking at the annual G20 summit, Putin said on Saturday that Russia was in the process of creating a second and third vaccine in response to the coronavirus, Reuters reported on Saturday

Putin also said he had reaffirmed his goal of mass-producing the vaccine for other countries For months, the Russian president has been pushing other countries to take his vaccine seriously

In August, Russia announced that it would begin the mass production process in September, despite the uncertainty plaguing Sputnik V

Earlier this month, the Kremlin announced that preliminary data showed the vaccine had a 92% effectiveness rate in preventing coronavirus But the data was based on just 20 confirmed cases of COVID-19, according to a press release

Putin told reporters in August that he had offered to help the United States develop a coronavirus vaccine, but the White House refused

Putin, however, maintains the claim that the vaccine « passed all the necessary checks », even adding at one point that he asked his own daughter to take it

There are two coronavirus vaccines that have been shown to have a high success rate in the fight against the coronavirus Pharmaceutical company Pfizer and biotech group Moderna announced earlier this month that they have developed vaccines with at least a 945% success rate in preventing coronavirus in clinical trials
