President of the Republic of Moldova Igor Dodon stated he was ready to be the first in our country to get COVID-19 vaccine, developed by specialists from the Russian Federation.
“I talked with colleagues from the Russian Federation and they have developed a vaccine that is undergoing testing. I have seen skepticism among many Moldovans, including officials about the Russian vaccine. Currently, the Russian Federation uses the vaccine only domestically, but when it is decided to use it outside the country, I am ready to offer myself as the first Moldovan citizen to test this vaccine on myself. I am ready to risk my health, if necessary, so that this vaccine reaches Moldova as soon as possible. I hope this will happen in the coming weeks,” Dodon said on the air of “President Answers”.
Recall, on August 11, the Russian President announced that Russia has registered the world's first vaccine against COVID-19. Recently, foreign scientists have expressed concerns about the development speed of such a vaccine, and the World Health Organization (WHO) has called for adherence to "clear guidelines and directives" while developing such a product.
However, the Russian vaccine has not yet passed one of the most important stages of testing, which tests the safety and efficacy of serum. At the same time, the scientific results of clinical trials of the vaccine have not been made public in Russia, so its supposed effectiveness cannot be verified.
