Russian Federation claims success in producing COVID-19 vaccine

China, where the virus originated, has largely brought its outbreak under control and has therefore had to turn to other countries to test its vaccines.

"The Russian Defence Ministry tests the vaccine on volunteers in full compliance with the acting legislation and scientific methodological regulations, in order to prevent further risks, without any attempt to reduce the duration of the research", the ministry said in a statement, as reported by Sputnik.

Scientists are planning to do human trials with this vaccine shortly to deliver the safety and efficacy of it.

"We showed a single immunization of the Ad26 COVID-19 vaccine induces neutralizing antibody response protection", said Dan H. Barouch, M.D., Ph.D., the director of the Center for Virology and Vaccine Research at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.

Russian Federation claims that "it's a Sputnik moment"; however, concerns continue to hover.

Sputnik was the world's first satellite launched by Russian Federation in 1957.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has said COVID-19 needs multiple vaccine approaches, noting the typical rate of success for vaccine development is only around 10%.

Swiss special prosecutor opens criminal proceedings against Federation Internationale de Football Association chief Infantino
A special prosecutor was appointed this month to investigate dealings between Swiss Attorney General Michael Lauber and Infantino. Infantino was elected in 2016 to replace disgraced Sepp Blatter, who also become the subject of criminal proceedings in 2015.

But, according to reports monitored on CNN, there are safety concerns being raised over the vaccine. The vaccine is now tested in a phase 1/2a study in 1,000 volunteers in the U.S and Belgium, and they are expecting to start the phase 3 trial in September.

The officials told the outlet that the vaccine will be approved for public use with frontline healthcare workers receiving it first. Trials on its vaccine have also started in many countries.

"We now need to move into larger scale real-world trials, but it is good to see more data and more products moving into this very important phase of vaccine discovery".

"(Regulatory) approval will be in the first two weeks of August", the development source said.

However, a number of global vaccines are already in the third phase of trials. Russian health professionals will be administered the COVID19 vaccine before the completion of its clinical trials, according to the Bloomberg report.

Of the seven variations, Ad26.COV2.S provides the most effective immune response, which will help humans to protect against COVID-19.
