The World Health Organization (WHO) will put Russia-made vaccine Sputnik V on the list of the recommended vaccines for urgent use - as long as it meets the necessary requirements.
The WHO press office reported that, quoted by RIA Novosti news agency.
"The WHO contacted Gamalei research and development institute of epidemiology and microbiology, which showed interest in applying for inclusion of Sputnik V into the list of vaccines recommended by the WHO for the use in urgent situation. So we are eagerly waiting to get the data on the Sputnik V candidate vaccine. If it appears that the product submitted for evaluation meets the criteria to be included on the list, the WHO will openly release the results", the Organization wrote.
The WHO did not yet provide any preliminary evaluation of the vaccine from Covid-19 for urgent use.
