  • Sputnik V vaccine: Indian doctor on scientific board

Foreign Secretary Marcelo Ebrard informed that the use of CanSino and Sputnik V vaccines against Covid-19 from China and Russian Federation, respectively, are about to be authorized in Mexico, and the latter will reach the country at the end of January.

Mexico aims to administer 7.4 million doses of Sputnik V by the end of March which could start arriving next week, even though its use has not yet been approved, according to a government plan presented on Tuesday.

Russian Direct Investment Fund expect the process of gradual expertise for further registration of the Sputnik V coronavirus vaccine in the European Union will commence in February, the Fund representative said Wednesday. The first one, Sputnik V was registered in summer 2020; it is already employed by many countries worldwide. Despite such a high efficacy rate, the rollout of this vaccine wasn't as smooth as expected with 20 volunteers contracting COVID-19 after getting vaccinated. The plan envisages analyzing the experience of producing the vaccine in other countries by the Turkmen diplomatic missions overseas.

As mentioned in the report, the original coronavirus strain that causes COVID-19 has mutated over time, and several new variants were detected in recent weeks in such countries as Brazil, South Africa and the United Kingdom. However, it is not yet clear how many people participated in the phase studies of the vaccine.

Both vaccines employ two doses, an initial shot and a booster, and are based on a similar scientific approach using common cold viruses as vectors.

According to the latest data, the number of global coronavirus cases has reached the grim milestones of 97 million cases and two million fatalities.
