"This 'vaccine candidate' has already shown complete neutralization of the virus in living human cells," the minister said.
He added that the Ukrainian coronavirus vaccine might appear in a year in case of positive results of clinical trials.
As we reported earlier, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky claimed that he was ready to test the Ukrainian vaccine from coronavirus if it passed the stage of clinical tests.
"The President said that a unique Ukrainian vaccine from Covid-19 has been undergoing clinical tests (not on human subjects so far). The specialists worked on the drug for six months. The head of the state admitted that no one has developed vaccines since Soviet times. He added that if the vaccine against coronavirus successfully passes the tests, he was ready to test it himself," reads the message.
