The era of the space race is over and that of the vaccine has begun. Russia was the first nation in the world to send a man into space and the same Russia is again the first country to develop a vaccine to save humanity or at least they proclaim so.
Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday (11/08/2020) announced that his Nation has registered itself to be the first country in the world to develop a coronavirus vaccine and one of his daughters is the first to get vaccinated.
During a televised video conference call with other top ministers, the spy turned president announced, “This morning for the first time in the world, a vaccine against the new coronavirus was registered”.
Last month Russian Health Minister Mikhail Murashko announced that by August 10 to 12 they would be able to launch the vaccine and by October, they will carry out the mass distribution of the vaccine.
It looks like they are very much in time despite various criticism they have been facing on the transparency of their clinical trials. “We need more trial before we can register it as an official vaccine,” urged The Association of Clinical Trails Organisation (ACTO), a body representing various organizations conducting clinical trials in Russia as reported by Russian Media outlets.
The American experts like Larry Gostin and Dr Anthony Fauci doubt the effectiveness of the Vaccine while the Russians are very much confident about the same. Even WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus warned that ‘vaccine nationalism’ cannot beat coronavirus’.
Whatever be the outcome the only thing that we can expect is a vaccine that will break the cycle of the virus and the human race can continue with their normal life.
