"Yesterday we received our Belarusian vaccine in a test tube. It is another vaccine, different from what we are buying today. As doctors call it, a live vaccine," Lukashenko said.
The President of Belarus pointed out that there is no guarantee that the current vaccines will help in the future against new mutations in the virus. "Today we have vaccines that work. We stuck Russian technologies, bought the Chineses. And tomorrow we will adapt our vaccine, which is already in a test tube, to the strain we will have. Who knows how life will turn out," Lukashenko said.
As it was reported earlier, Belarus will launch industrial production of Sputnik V, a Russian vaccine against coronavirus. A pilot batch is being examined by experts in Russia.
