All Round View (Peshawar): The World Health Organization (WHO) has established a dialogue with Russian makers of a COVID-19 vaccine “Sputnik V” to evaluate the vaccine, WHO Representative in Russia Melita Vujnovic said in a television interview.
Vujnovic noted that if there are enough vaccine doses, up to 2 bln people will be vaccinated by the end of 2021. “We hope this will be enough to decrease the infection rate,” she said.
According to the WHO, there are currently about 170 COVID-19 vaccines in development across the world. Russia registered the first COVID-19 vaccine on August 11 by the name of “Sputnik V.” The vaccine was developed by the Gamaleya Federal Research Center for Epidemiology and Microbiology. Post-registration trials of the vaccine are currently underway.
