Russia has officially registered a coronavirus vaccine developed by the Moscow-based Gamaleya Institute. Putin said: "A vaccine against coronavirus has been registered for the first time in the world this morning," adding: "I know that it works quite effectively, it forms a stable immunity."
Putin also said: "So we're the first to have registered. I hope our foreign colleagues' work will move as well, and a lot of products will appear on an international market that could be used,"
The Russian President revealed that one of his daughters has taken the vaccine; he said she had a slightly higher temperature following the injections, but that she now feels better. "I know this very well too, as one of my daughters has been inoculated with the vaccine," he said. CNN
