Russia: Moscow receives 1 bln preliminary requests for new COVID vaccine from 20 countries - RDIF CEO

Russian Federation, Moscow
August 11, 2020 at 19:43 GMT -00:00 · Published

Russia has received preliminary requests for some one billion doses of the newly registered ‘Sputnik V’ coronavirus vaccine from 20 countries, CEO of the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) Kirill Dmitriev stated at a press conference in Moscow on Tuesday.

“We already received tentative interest and preliminary requests for one billion doses of the Russian vaccine,” Dmitriev said.

The vaccine, named ‘Sputnik V,’ is produced by the Gamaleya Research Institute of Epidemiology and Microbiology.

Dmitriev added that Russia was building a partnership to make the vaccine in five other countries over the next 12 months, as more clinical trials would be carried out in the UAE, Saudi Arabia, and the Philippines.

He said that phase three trials would be starting from Wednesday, adding that all clinical trial data produced so far would be published in scientific journals. Answering a question about when the trials would be added to World Health Organisation’s clinical trials list, Dmitriev said that the information had been sent to WHO, adding that, “we expect WHO updates their list shortly.”
