President Putin claims Russia has developed an effective Covid-19 vaccine

Russia has developed the first vaccine offering “sustainable immunity” against the Covid-19, President Vladimir Putin claimed.

“This morning, for the first time in the world, a vaccine against the new coronavirus was registered,” Putin said. “One of my daughters had this vaccine. I think in this sense she took part in the experiment,” he continued.

Russia has been pushing hard to quickly develop a Covid-19 vaccine and said earlier this month it hoped to launch mass production within weeks and turn out “several million” doses per month by next year.

The World Health Organization last week cautioned Russia to follow established guidelines and go “through all the stages” necessary to develop a safe vaccine.
