The Ukrainian vaccine against coronavirus, the production of which will take up to a year, will cost more than $ 5 million. This was announced during a briefing by the Minister of Health Maksym Stepanov.
"The vaccine will cost us more than $ 3-5 million," Stepanov said.
The Minister of Health said that the creation of a Ukrainian vaccine will be fully funded by the state, as Volodymyr Zelensky insisted on this.
"Calculations will be made, and I believe that it will be fully funded by the state (namely, the production of this vaccine), and this is what the president of the country insists on, among other things," he said.
As we reported earlier, Ukrainian vaccine against coronavirus might be produced not earlier than in a year.
"We might expect if everything goes smoothly and the electricity will never be shut off – it takes nine months. In fact, the issue is about a year,” President of DiaPrep System Inc Company Mykhailo Favorov stated.
He noted that ‘these processes cannot be accelerated’ and unverified vaccine cannot be used. Initially, all three phases should be held and get the positive results of the third phase.
