Moscow: Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday announced that his country has developed first vaccine that “works quite effectively" and "forms a stable immunity" against Covid-19 as he disclosed that one of his daughters has already been vaccinated.
Putin made the claim during a meeting where he described it as a very important step for the world.
He said that one of his daughters took part in the experiment and she was vaccinated against the coronavirus.
"After the first vaccination, she had a body temperature of 38 degrees Celsius, while the following day it was slightly over 37 degrees Celsius, that's it. After the second injection, the second vaccination, her temperature also rose a little, and then everything cleared up, she feels good and the [antibody] titers are high,” Putin said.
“It works quite effectively" and "forms a stable immunity," he said.
Putin thanked everyone who worked on the first-ever vaccine against the coronavirus and hoped that Russia will be able to start mass production of this medication in the near future.
"I hope that our colleagues abroad will also move forward, and there will be quite a lot of products that can be used on the market, on the world market for medicines and vaccines," Putin said.
