Russian President Vladimir Putin has given regulatory approval for use of a Coronavirus vaccine which was developed locally by Moscow’s Gamaleya Institute.

Mr Putin stated that the vaccine had passed all the required examinations and for about two months, the vaccine has been successfully tested on humans including his daughter.

This Russian vaccine is not among the World Health Organisation’s list of six vaccines that have reached phase three clinical trials, which involve more widespread testing in humans.

The WHO has cautioned Russia to follow international guidelines for producing and using the  Covid-19 vaccine.

However, President Putin insists that, the vaccine offers “sustainable immunity” against the Virus.

The Health Minister Mikhail Murashko also added that the vaccine had “proven to be highly effective and safe”.

The Russian government further announced that, it will begin a mass vaccination across the country in October.

More than 100 vaccines around the world are in early development, with some of those being tested on people in clinical trials. Despite rapid progress, most experts think a vaccine will not become widely available until mid-2021.
