Russia completes clinical trials of COVID-19 vaccine

Russia has made a major leap in the fight against CoVID-19 for being the first to complete human trials.

“The research has been completed and it proved that the vaccine is safe. The volunteers will be discharged on July 15 and July 20,”

– Elena Smolyarchuk, Chief researcher for the Russian Center for Clinical Research on Medications at Sechenov University

They haven’t disclosed yet when this vaccine would enter commercial production.

About 20 people volunteered for the injection of the then potential coronavirus vaccine developed by the Gamaleya National Research Center for Epidemiology and Microbiology.

Upon introduction to the vaccine, volunteers were asked to quarantine in the hospital for 28 days.

Russia has 719,449 confirmed cases with a death toll of 11,188 people from complications caused by Covid-19.

With at least 21 vaccines currently under trial worldwide, this gives us confidence that we can finally stop/contain the virus from taking over the world and our lives.
