Russia Approved World First COVID-19 Vaccine Despite Safety Concerns
Antidote Named Sputnik V After World's First Satellite Launched In Orbit
Russia has become the first country to form the world first COVID-19 vaccine for widespread usage across the world. This vaccination by Russian scientist has been approved to be used in large communities worldwide after clinical testing for the last two months. The first dosage of this coronavirus antidote has been administered in one of the daughters of Vladimir Putin, the President of Russia.
According to Kirill Dmitreiv, the administrator of RDIG sovereign wealth fund of the country, that the world first COVID-19 vaccine will be broadcasted across the world by the brand name of Sputnik V, which already has an international agreement from 20 countries globally to produce 500ml doses and the large quantity of 1 billion dosages vials. The name of the world first COVID-19 vaccine developed by Russia has the same name as the first satellite ever launched into the orbit across the world by Russia during the space race of the cold war.
The development of the first-ever antidote produced to combat against the coronavirus pandemic provides evidence regarding the increasing technological assistance provided by the country. But this world first COVID-19 vaccine clinical human trial has only last for the time period of two months, which has raised eyebrows in multiple areas as the safety guideline trials of phase 3 is yet to be completed, which usually required several months. Instead, proper phase 3 trial testing will be conducted in Brazil in parallel with the mass production of the coronavirus antidote.
The mass development of the world first COVID-19 vaccine is likely to begin soon in the upcoming month. The first batch of the antidote for immunization against coronavirus will be given to frontline healthcare workers along with teachers. The immunization booster will be available to be administered for medics from the last week of this month or the beginning of September. The general administration of the world first COVID-19 vaccine will be initiated from January 2021, for which the shot process will be completely voluntary.
Safety regarding the Russian COVID-19 vaccine
Some of the workers in the public sector have expressed their concerns over the safety of the vaccine as he pointed out the underfunded and run down the healthcare system of the country. Due to these allegations, one of the school’s teachers declined to administer the vaccine into her bloodstream.
According to Russian President Vladimir Putin, the world first COVID-19 vaccine is safe for administration, due to which he has allowed one of his daughters to be administered with the antidote along with some of the influential Russian elite family members. By seeing first-hand impressions of the vaccine, Putin is sure that the antidote will provide effective effects on the body while increasing the immune system functions.
The phase 3 clinical trials of the world first COVID-19 vaccine are being used to identify any rare side effects of the immunity booster that might harm the human body in any way along with providing a broader sample of the population group. During the initial clinical trial, 76 volunteers were chosen from the country on June 17, out of which half has been recruited from the country’s military department, which raised an issue that the usage of services personnel has been done involuntarily.
Before the mass manufacturing of the coronavirus vaccine, there are initially enough doses available in the country that might be used to completely vaccinate the local population of 10 to 15 out of 85 regions in Russia. Experts across the world are saying that even if the alleged safe coronavirus vaccine is effective after administration of the drug, it may be partially effective or might not give protection against the viral disease at all.
