Fake News on Sputnik V Covid1 Vaccine Proven Wrong

Fake News on Sputnik V Covid1 Vaccine Proven Wrong Initial trial finds Russia vaccine 91.6% efficient, EU does not rule out a deal

Assistant Health Secretary Hugo Lpez-Gatell, the government's pandemic spokesman, said the health ministry signed a contract Monday for 400,000 doses of Sputnik V that will arrive this month.

Russian Federation says it has received pre-orders of more than a billion doses of Sputnik V, but it is unable to meet that level of demand.

Since the trial began in Moscow, there were 16 recorded cases of symptomatic COVID-19 among people who received the vaccine, and 62 among the placebo group, the scientists said.

Russian Federation was the first country to officially launch a COVID-19 vaccine, it did so back in August 2020.

"The development of the Sputnik V vaccine has been criticised for unseemly haste, corner-cutting, and an absence of transparency", wrote Professor Ian Jones and Professor Polly Roy in a comment published along with the Lancet paper.

"People there really need the vaccine", he said.

Sputnik V is registered in more than a dozen other countries including former Soviet republics as well as allies such as Venezuela and Iran, as well as South Korea, Argentina, Algeria, Tunisia and Pakistan.

In India, Dr Reddy's will be supplying around 250 million doses of the vaccine while Hetero Biopharma will be manufacturing about 100 million doses per year.

"We can also provide support for the production of a vaccine that has not yet been approved in Europe, or is not approved at all", he said.

"Our interim analysis of the randomized, controlled, phase-3 trial of Gam-COVID-Vac in Russian Federation has shown high efficacy, immunogenicity, and a good tolerability profile in participants aged 18 years or older", co-lead author Dr. Inna V Dolzhikova said at the media briefing.

The authors also note that because COVID-19 cases were detected only when participants self-reported symptoms (followed by a PCR test), the efficacy analysis only includes symptomatic cases of COVID-19, and further research is needed to understand the efficacy of the vaccine on asymptomatic COVID-19, and transmission.

At least three more Russian coronavirus vaccines are expected to be rolled out in the coming weeks.

According to the Lancet report, 14,964 participants in the vaccine group and 4,902 in the placebo group were given two jabs 21 days apart.

Sputnik V uses two different vectors for the two shots in a course of vaccination, providing immunity with a longer duration than vaccines using the same delivery mechanism for both shots.

It has also authorized the shot developed by AstraZeneca and the University of Oxford, and has a deal to produce the vaccine in collaboration with Argentina. He said the two different versions of adenovirus led to higher immune response against the coronavirus.

Last month, Putin ordered a large vaccination campaign to begin in Russian Federation. Susan Shand adapted it for Learning English.
