The Ministry of Health of Venezuela registered a Russian vaccine against coronavirus Sputnik V. This is stated in a statement of the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF).
RDIF noted that the registration of the drug was carried out under an accelerated procedure. “Under a similar procedure, the Sputnik V vaccine was previously registered in Argentina, Bolivia, Serbia, Algeria, and Palestine,” the fund said in a statement.
It is also indicated that supplies will be secured through RDIF’s international partners in India, China, South Korea, and other countries.
Venezuelan leader Nicolas Maduro previously reported that the first 10 million doses of vaccines against coronavirus should arrive from Russia in the first quarter of 2021.
In December, Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro’s son Guerra was vaccinated with the Russian Sputnik V coronavirus vaccine. After the procedure, he said that Russia appeared to be a “stronghold” of medicine at the global level. While some countries “concentrate on fomenting wars, interference, sanctions, and attempts to do harm,” Russia concentrates on “finding a cure for the world’s diseases.
