O Instituto Gamaleya, responsible for the development of the Russian vaccine SputnikV, responded to the tute of the Argentine president Alberto Fernandez, in which he announced that he tested positive for COVID-19, reinforcing the effectiveness of the vaccine. Fernndez had taken both doses of Sputnik in January and February.
“We are sad to hear this (the announcement of the Argentine president’s infection). SputnikV is 91.6% effective against the infection and 100% effective against rare cases. If the infection is indeed confirmed and occurs, the vaccination guarantees rapid recovery without symptoms. We wish you (Fernndez) a speedy recovery “, stated the Institute in a post on Twitter.In a CNN interview that aired this morning, the physician Gonzalo Vecina Neto, former president of Anvisa, stated that in 35 countries Sputnik has not yet received approval from health agencies. Wanted by the report, the institute did not confirm this information, but stressed that Sputnik is approved for use in 59 countries and that it is the second in the world in terms of approvals by government regulatory agencies.
