On Friday, the Federal Government said it was ready to test the Covid-19 vaccine authorized by President Putin of Russia for the prevention of the latest pandemic of Coronavirus.
In a tweet, the ministry says, “All information in terms of therapeutics & vaccinations is discussed.”
Osagie says the rationale for its expression of interest in the COVID-19 vaccine would give the ministry the chance to work in-depth.
In August, the Russian government had recently announced that it had developed a vaccine to treat the new COVID-19 vaccine, adding that in October it would launch mass vaccinations against the virus.
Russian experts have said that the vaccine’s early-stage trials have been completed and the findings have been promising.
In order to stimulate the immune response, the vaccine uses modified strains of adenovirus, a virus that normally triggers a common cold.
