Russian vaccine not in advanced test stages: WHO

Vastavam web: The World Health Organization says the vaccine approved by Russia this week is not among the nine that it considers in the advanced stages of testing. “We don’t have sufficient information at this point to make a judgment” on the Russia vaccine, said Dr. Bruce Aylward, a senior adviser to WHO’s director-general. “We’re currently in conversation with Russia to get additional information to understand the status of that product, the trials that have been undertaken and then what the next steps might be.”
