Russian Federation claims that Phase 3 clinical trials have shown the vaccine to be 92% effective against COVID-19, "based on 20 confirmed COVID-19 cases split between vaccinated individuals and those who received the placebo".

In a video that surfaced on media, containers with logos of Dr Reddy's and Sputnik V being unloaded from a small truck was seen.

The South Korean firm is expected to begin production next month, the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) said in a statement.

Iran has repeatedly said it is open to buying a coronavirus vaccine from another country as soon as its efficacy is confirmed by the World Health Organization, while continuing its work on a homemade medicine.

Switzerland, which has 8.6 million people and hopes to start vaccinating some time in the first half of 2021, had previously reserved almost 10 million doses of prospective vaccines from Moderna and AstraZeneca and has now set aside 400 million Swiss francs ($435.92 million) for purchases.

Interim trial data from Pfizer and BioNTech released on Monday indicated that its vaccine candidate was more than 90% effective.

"The government is committed to fast-track clinical development of COVID vaccine candidates and provide facilitation to accelerate market readiness of a suitable vaccine", said Renu Swarup, Secretary, DBT and Chairperson, BIRAC.

Kroger Co.is one of 14 grocery companies included in the United States Department of Health and Human Services' Federal Pharmacy Partnership Strategy, an initiative meant to ensure the eventual vaccine is accessible across the country.
