A team of scientists in Russia recently published its first report about the early results of the “first-ever” vaccine for the novel coronavirus disease.
KAMI learned that numerous studies are being conducted after the said country announced in August that it has registered the first COVID-19 vaccine in the world.
It was Russian President Vladimir Putin who shared the good news, but many people doubted the said treatment because of how fast it was developed.
“This morning, for the first time in the world, a vaccine against the new coronavirus was registered,” he quipped through a televised cabinet session.
“I know that it’s effective and forms sustainable immunity,” he added.
A few days ago, The New York Times shared the report of Russian scientists about how the vaccine called “Sputnik V” performed on early trials.
It stated that the said vaccine was actually safe and every person who participated in the trials developed antibodies.
CNN Philippines also reported several important details about the results. It said that the levels of antibody response developed after the vaccine was administered were similar to that of the people who have recovered from the disease.
Popular news site BBC.com also reiterated that all the participants who received “Sputnik V” did not experience any serious side effects.
The novel coronavirus disease has been affecting the lives of many people since December last year. Many places in the world are on community quarantine because of the threat of the virus.
A few months ago, an Italian doctor claimed that the said disease is already getting weaker and it may just disappear without the need for a vaccine.
The World Health Organization also gave an important update regarding the “effective vaccine” against COVID-19.
