Last week, Russia announced that it had approved the first coronavirus vaccine, and now news has come out about Russia testing the vaccine in different countries.
Since the coronavirus vaccine announcement, medical professionals have raised concerns about how Russia has passed Phase 3 of clinical trials, yet has already begun production of the vaccine. Now, news has come out from Kirill Dmitriev, CEO of the Russian Direct Investment Fund, spoke to Arab News and said that the Russians have reached an agreement to conduct clinical trials in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
Bloomberg reports that Russia is working with a pharmaceutical company in the kingdom, and have already shared the data from its Phase 1 and Phase 2 trials with its Saudi partners. Here's what Dmitriev said, "We'll really engage with Saudi scientists and the Saudi Health Ministry. We believe that Saudi will be a very strong partner for our joint work on the Sputnik V vaccine."
