Vastavam web: We are not going to approve Corona vaccine developed by russia, says Canada Deputy Chief Public Health Officer Howard Njoo. Earlier in the day, President Vladimir Putin announced that Russia became the first country in the world to register a novel coronavirus vaccine. Njoo said regarding the possibility Canada may approve the Russian vaccine that he does not think that they are going to approve as far too much information is missing. Canada’s Chief Public Health Officer Dr Theresa Tam said Russian vaccine to treat coronavirus might not be approved in Canada. In Canada, they even found it surprising that the vaccine was approved in Russia, given the testing timelines. And Russia states that they are producing 500 million doses of vaccine in coming one year.
