The clinical trials of the world’s first vaccine for the novel Coronavirus have been completed by Sechenov First Moscow State Medical University in Russia.
According to Alexander Lukashev, the director of the Institute of Medical Parasitology, Tropical and Vector-Borne Diseases at Sechenov University, the objective of this stage of the study was to show the vaccine’s safety for human health, which was successfully done.

“The safety of the vaccine is confirmed. It corresponds to the safety of those vaccines that are currently on the market,” Lukashev told Sputnik.

The further vaccine development plan is already being determined by the developer’s strategy, including the complexity of the epidemiological situation with the virus and the possibility of scaling up production, Lukashev added.

Meanwhile, the World Health Organisation had last month announced that Oxford’s vaccine was most advanced. It is expected to bed rolled out soon as AstraZeneca by Oxford is in the third phase of clinical trials.

Finally, some human development news from a supposedly & predominantly secretive country (Russia) which might not have, openly at least, contributed much in this area ie of international human development. And, it is really a great news (that they have successfully completed human trials of COVID19 vaccine). May God bless this biggest (in size) country, the people & importantly, the administrators there, to earn more reputation as one of the most humanitarian countries. Congratulations & best wishes. Really good news. Be quick now; start commercial production quickly; and, let the benefits of the research conducted so far, ie the vaccine, be now passed on for the welfare of humanity. Really wonderful news !!!... Read more
