Russian Federation to Send India 100M Coronavirus Vaccine Doses

1 in 7 Russian Coronavirus Vaccine Volunteers Report Side Effects

One in seven volunteers have complained of side effects, including weakness, muscle pain and rise in body temperature, after being injected with Sputnik V - Russia's vaccine against COVID-19 - according to the country's health minister.

"The pandemic won't end ".until significant parts of the population can be provided a vaccine", eminent German virologist Carsten Drosten told DW on Thursday.

"We do not allege misconduct, we just want them to provide additional data", said Dr. Konstantin Andreev, one of the signatories and a microbiologist and biophysicist affiliated with the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and Northwestern University. "This is probably something we shouldn't consider for any country in Europe".

The company released a 135-page protocol that outlines how half of the participants will receive the vaccine and half will receive a placebo of saltwater.

Unlike an AstraZeneca Plc trial that has been put on hold twice to investigate possible neurological adverse events, Moderna's trial hasn't had any pauses to probe potential safety problems, Bancel said.

When a new vaccine is developed it has to withstand the challenges of the skeptics.

"Upon regulatory approval in India, RDIF shall supply to Dr. Reddy's 100 million doses of the vaccine", it said in a statement on its website.

In an earlier phase of the company study, researchers said the vaccine triggered an immune system response in a handful of participants.

Demise: Microsoft Co-founder Bill gates' father breathes his last
Gates was serious and judicious about learning! Gates also said his dad has a huge influence on his philanthropy works. The family announced that Gates died peacefully on Monday at his beach home, from Alzheimer's disease.

The announcement came as President Trump clashed with the head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention over a timeline for when a vaccine would be widely available.

Sinovac was not directly tied to any of China's substandard vaccines, but the company has been prone to missteps.

CureVac went public in August.

How long before vaccine production is fully ramped up? But he also said that the urgency of the global pandemic could alter this calculus. He estimated the price at around €10 to €15 a dose. The results of these trials are expected to be published in October or November 2020.

The Marburg purchase comes just days after BioNTech received a 375-million-euro ($440-million) funding boost from the German government. The Russian vaccine is based on a human cell. It will partner with Hyderabad-based pharmaceutical giant Dr Reddy's.

It is unclear when a vaccine will be available for children as major drugmakers have yet to include them in late-stage trials.

Earlier this week, the company announced it was maneuvering to acquire a pharmaceutical production facility in Marburg, Germany, now owned by Swiss pharmaceutical company Novartis.

States and local communities will handle distributing the vaccine, and must submit plans to the federal government in about a month's time.
