Russian President Vladimir Putin promised South Korean President Moon Jae In to be vaccinated against coronavirus and come to this country. This was reported by RIA Novosti with reference to the report of the administration of the South Korean president.
“I will come to South Korea … I will personally take the Russian vaccine and go,” Putin's words are quoted. It is noted that the President of South Korea, in turn, highly appreciated the cooperation between the two countries in shipbuilding and other areas from his concept of “9 bridges”.
Earlier in September, it was reported that the second vaccine against the coronavirus “EpiVacCorona”, developed by the “Vector” center, is planned to be registered by October 15. The Ministry of Health made a decision to conduct an examination of documents for registration, after which it is planned to check the quality of the drug and register it by the specified date.
On August 11, the registration of the world's first coronavirus vaccine, developed by the Gamaleya Center, was announced. The production of the drug was launched on August 15, and in September the Ministry of Health announced that the first batch of the Sputnik V vaccine had been released into civil circulation. The first to be vaccinated are doctors and citizens at risk.
