CEO of the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) Kirill Dmitriev, on 7 September, confirmed that clinical trials of Sputnik V - Russia's COVID vaccine - will be held in September across India and other countries.

Earlier, the RDIF had also affirmed that it is in close dialogue with the Indian government to manufacture the vaccine at a large level.

"The preliminary results of the Phase 3 trial will be published in October-November 2020," said the RDIF CEO.

~ Sputnik-V to reach public by 2021: Roman Kosarev, Correspondent with state-owned news channel Russia Today had informed that the vaccine will be available to the general public by January 1, 2021.

Kosarev highlighted that vaccine will first be given to medical workers and others at the helm of the battle against the virus.

"Phase-3 of the clinical trial is happening now. The people who will be receiving the vaccine here in Russia will be medical workers, teachers and everyone who works closely with those infected. The vaccine - Sputnik - V will be available to the general public on January 1, 2021. Phase 3 is still taking place and it includes testing on foreign subjects. So it's not going to be tested in Russia right now," Kosarev had told Republic TV.

‘Sputnik V’, which was approved in Russia last month, passed the early tests and produced an antibody response in all participants with no serious adverse effect, The Lancet journal had said this last week.
