Russia to begin clinical trials for its Covid-19 vaccine “Sputnik V” from next week

Russia declared on Thursday that it will start post-enrollment clinical trials for its Covid-19 vaccine one week from now and 40,000 individuals will take it. Kirill Dmitriev, CEO of the Russian Direct Investment Fund, said during a telebriefing with writers that the trials will occur in a few nations.

Clinical trials won’t simply happen in Russia but also in the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Philippines, most likely in Brazil or in India. Specialists are distrustful about how rapidly the vaccine was enlisted and what a small number of insights concerning the exploration have been delivered.

Up until this point, Russia hasn’t delivered any logical information on its testing. Created by the Gamaleya Institute, the vaccine was affirmed by the Russian government before starting critical Phase 3 trials in which it would be managed to a huge number of individuals.
