It is noted that Moscow aims to produce more than a billion doses at home and abroad in 2021.
Inoculation will be free of charge for Russian citizens. It will consist of two doses, each of which will cost less than 10 dollars.
“It is more than twice as cheap as other vaccines that have the same efficacy levels. Right now, Sputnik V is the cheapest vaccine with an efficacy level above 90% in Phase III clinical trials," the statement said.
As we reported earlier, AstraZeneca will be able to provide up to 200 million doses of its coronavirus vaccine by the end of 2020, and 700 million doses of the substance by the end of the first quarter of 2021.
It was told that the company expected to send four million finished vaccine doses by the end of 2020, and another 40 million - by the end of the next year's first quarter.
The company's vaccine resulted in an average efficacy of 70%.
