Batay sa health ministry ng Russia 90 porsyentong epektibo kontra coronavirus disease (COVID-19) ang Sputnik V vaccine.
“We are responsible for monitoring the effectiveness of the Sputnik V vaccine among citizens who have received it as part of the mass vaccination program,” pahayag ni Oksana Drapkina, director of a research institute under the health ministry.
“Based on our observations, its effectiveness is also more than 90%. The appearance of another effective vaccine—this is good news for everyone,” dagdag nito.
Namamahagi na ng bakuna ang pamahalaan ng Russia sa mga lokal na residente nito kahit hindi pa tapos ang clinical trial.
“In the near future we expect to publish interim results of the post-registration trial of the vaccine Sputnik V, the so-called Phase III trials. I am sure that its effectiveness level will also be high,” saad ni Gamaleya Institute director Alexander Gintsburg.
Ang nasabing bakuna ay i-tetest sa 40,000 katao sa Moscow ngayong buwan para sa Phase III trial.
