Putin: Russia approves second COVID-19 vaccine

China’s Sinopharm offers experimental COVID-19 vaccines to students WSJ

Separately, a US$60 (S$81.50) double-dose experimental coronavirus vaccine is being made available to some residents in an eastern Chinese city, health officials have said - the first details of a mass rollout for an as-yet unproven vaccine.

Russian Federation registered the new vaccine in August, before a large-scale Phase-3 clinical trial was conducted.

However, whether the shot can safely protect people from the Covid-19 disease that has killed more than one million people worldwide will only become clear when final Phase III trials - which are ongoing outside China - are complete.

The trial was not created to assess efficacy of the vaccine, so it is not possible to say whether the antibody responses induced by the vaccine, called BBIBP-CorV, are sufficient to protect people from SARS-CoV-2 infection.

More than 600 healthy volunteers aged between 18 and 80 years old participated in these early-stage trials for China's Covid-19 vaccine candidate.

Dr Reddy's had entered into a partnership with RDIF to conduct clinical trials of Sputnik V vaccine and its distribution in India.

India's vaccines regulator has given the green light for a clinical study of the Russia-developed Covid-19 vaccine. Experts were expecting that the vaccine will completely inactivate the SARS-CoV-2 virus. "We all really want this vaccine". India is also considering emergency use authorisation for a Covid-19 vaccine, the union health minister Dr Harsh Vardhan has said. The vaccine would be produced in India and some of it could be sent back to Russian Federation, which is experiencing setbacks maintaining the serum's stability while expanding production. "However, Dr Swaminathan reiterated WHO's position against the unregulated spread of the virus in order to achieve herd immunity. Thereafter, we will produce more and more dosages, with the government's permission".

"For months, it's been necessary to remind Kentuckians that there is no cure for COVID-19 and that no vaccine exists", Stack said in the release.

Adding further, she said, "Once we have a vaccine, we can aim to have population immunity - herd immunity - because you'll need to vaccinate at least 70 per cent of people, have them protected, to really break the transmission". "This is why the COVAX initiative was put together by the WHO, Gavi, and CEPI, which is a mechanism by which countries will get access to minimum vaccine doses to cover the priority targeting in different countries", Dr. Mihigo commented.
