The Russian Ministry of Health has confirmed that the country has started the mass production of Covid-19 vaccine developed by the Gamaleya Institute for Scientific Research on Epidemiology and Microbiology.

The Sputnik V vaccine has undergone all the necessary tests and has been shown to build the immune system against nCoV.

According to Russian officials, the country is capable of producing 500 million doses of Covid-19 vaccine in the next 12 months. Production is also expected to take place overseas and clinical trials are expected to begin soon in the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and the Philippines.

It is known that on August 11, Russia became the first country in the world to license the covid-19 vaccine, although it has not yet completed the third phase of testing with the participation of thousands of people. "Sputnik V - the name of this vaccine is named after the first satellite in the world" Sputnik 1 "launched into space by the Soviet Union in 1957.

Russian Covid-19 vaccine consists of 2 parts that are injected 3 weeks apart to create an immune response to the virus causing the disease.

On the same day, Russian President Vladimir Putin said the country's Ministry of Health had approved the Covid-19 vaccine after the vaccine went through a second phase of testing in June and July.

Vaccine development usually takes several years to test and manufacture on a large scale, but Putin stressed that the Russian vaccine has undergone the necessary tests.

So far Russia has received orders from 20 countries for 1 billion doses of Covid-19 vaccine.
