The Russian test of human COVID-19 vaccine has proven effective

Scientists in Russia have tested the vaccine against COVID-19 by injecting itself into the body. The results showed that the vaccine was initially effective.

RT news agency (Russia) said that the epidemiologists at the National Center for Disease Research in Moscow has injected the vaccine into their bodies and checked the results. This is also a test unofficial first with vaccine virus SARS CoV-2 cause COVID-19 .

Experimental results showed that the drug was effective when the test participants formed antibodies to the SARS-CoV-2 virus without causing side effects.

Answering to TASS news agency, director of the Alexander Ginzburg Research Center, said: 
"We will consider it a success if we get permission from the Ministry of Health and conduct an official test."
The option of testing the vaccine on its own was chosen not only to prove its effectiveness but also to protect researchers from the disease. They believe the body will become immune and be able to continue working during the epidemic season, Ginzburg said.

The director of Ginzburg did not specify how many researchers were vaccinated but described them as being "healthy and happy". He hopes the vaccine will be approved by the end of the summer.

According to Ginzburg, if licensed, it takes 6 months for all Russians to use this vaccine. At that time, the first group of people who had access to the vaccine should be doctors on the front lines of the fight against COVID-19 and the elderly.

Meanwhile, on 21/5, Health Minister Mikhail Murashko told Russia 1 TV channel that "the dissemination of vaccines could appear at the end of July". Russian Deputy Prime Minister Tatyana Golikova said the country is developing about 47 different vaccines.

Currently, there are nine types of anti-SARS-CoV-2 anti-virus vaccine from Russia on the list of 70 potential therapeutic therapies released by the World Health Organization (WHO) in April.
