After claiming to have developed the world’s first corona virus, Russia says it has succeeded in making a second vaccine for the virus. Its clinical trials will be completed in September. The name of this vaccine is EpiVacCorona. Russia claims that it has no side effects.
Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the creation of a corona virus vaccine named Sputnik V. However, he was severely criticized for the many side effects of this vaccine. Doubts may also arise about the country’s second vaccine. This vaccine is being developed by the Siberian Vector Research Center.
Earlier, the World Health Organization (WHO) said that no vaccine of corona virus would come before 2021. Russia is manufacturing the Epivaccorona vaccine at a former top secret biological weapons plant in the Soviet Union in Siberia.
According to Sputnik News, Russia’s consumer rights protection and human welfare watchdog Rosotrebnadzor said, “14 more people were vaccinated during the first phase and 43 more during the second phase.” The watchdog said all volunteers participating in the clinical trials of the Covid-19 vaccine are feeling well.
The scientists said that the volunteers who were given the new vaccine were kept in the hospital for 23 days so that they could be tested. News agency Interfax reported, ‘All volunteers are feeling well. No side effects have been found so far. ‘
