Chief Sanitary Doctor of Ukraine Viktor Lyashko said that there were no plans to test the American vaccine against coronavirus. He said this in an interview with Segodnya.

"According to my information, a clinical study of immunobiological drugs in Ukraine has not yet been registered," Lyashko said.

He noted that a dossier should be submitted to the State Expert Center before the tests were actually held.

The official also added that vaccines were rarely tested in Ukraine. According to him, it is due to the fact that the country has abandoned the production of immunobiological drugs.

As we reported earlier, yesterday, on November 1, Israel began clinical trials of its Covid-19 vaccine.

Segev Harel, 26, received the first dose at the Sheba Medical Center in Ramat Gan, while 34-year-old doctoral student Anar Ottolenghi was given an injection at Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center in Jerusalem.

On Tuesday, the second group of volunteers will arrive at two hospitals to receive the vaccine. One in four of them will be provided with a placebo.
