The vaccine can be delivered pain-free without a needle into the skin, using a simple jet of air.

Russian Federation claims to have developed the world's first COVID-19 vaccine, which works "quite effectively" and forms a "stable immunity" against the infection.

Pune-based Serum Institute of India, which has partnered with AstraZeneca for manufacturing the Oxford COVID-19 vaccine candidate, has also started the process of conducting phase 2 and 3 human clinical trials of the candidate in India.

The European pharmaceuticals vaccine lobby is pushing the EU for certain liability protections as drugmakers around the world rush to develop a coronavirus vaccine.

The vaccine has received a registration certificate from the Russian Ministry of Health on August 11 and under emergency rules adopted during the COVID-19 pandemic can be used to vaccinate the population in Russia. The other three are developed by the University of Oxford/AstraZeneca, Moderna/NIAID and BioNTech/Fosun Pharma/Pfizer, he added.

Associate Professor Chappell, part of a group of Brisbane researchers who have spent the past seven months working on the candidate vaccine, presented the latest findings to 3000 members of the International Society of Vaccines on a Zoom hook-up overnight.

Sputnik V has been developed by the Gamaleya Research Institute of Epidemiology and Microbiology along with the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF). However, experts around the world are skeptical over the safety of the vaccine as it is yet to complete the crucial last stage human trials.

Putin and Lukashenko also agreed that Belarusians will "voluntarily participate" in the third stage of testing for Sputnik V, the presidential office said Monday amid mass anti-government protests in Belarus. While Russia has given some initial information to health ministry here seeking a collaboration, more detailed information is awaited, the government said. Six anti-viral drugs are now undergoing Phase 3 trials, according to World Health Organization data.

Now, it is reported that the Indian government has started talks with Russian Federation for collaboration on the Sputnik V vaccine.
