This is the last stage of Sputnik V tests. The Government of Nicolás Maduro said that it could also be produced in that country.

Venezuela received this Friday a first batch with 2,000 doses of the Russian vaccine against the new coronavirus, the Sputnik V, which will help the Caribbean country participate in phase 3 of the clinical trials.

“It is a historic moment for our country (…), we cannot hide the emotion that does not hold that it is Venezuela the first country in the Western Hemisphere to participate in phase 3 of clinical trials, “said the vice president of the Caribbean country, Delcy Rodríguez, at the head of the reception of the vaccines.

On August 30, Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro had announced that the country would join the Sputnik V clinical trials, a decision that, he said, was made after an “important meeting” between the Venezuelan Minister of Health, Carlos Alvarado. , and “the commission of Russian scientists” that develops the vaccine.

Alvarado, who this Friday was with the Venezuelan vice president in receiving the vaccines, said that testing will start “immediately”, and that the first doses will be applied in the city of Caracas.

Maduro did not participate in the event but celebrated the arrival of vaccines and thanked Vladimir Putin.

“Sputnik V is here! We are the first country in the Western Hemisphere to begin phase 3 of the clinical trials of this vaccine against Covid-19. On behalf of the Venezuelan people, I thank Brother President Vladimir Putin and the Russian people for their sample of solidarity “, highlighted Maduro from his Twitter account.

On August 15, Russia began producing its first vaccine against COVID-19, dubbed Sputnik V and which has been received with suspicion by the international scientific community due to the speed of trials and little information about the drug.

The Russian authorities plan to register a second vaccine against COVID-19, which is currently being developed by the Véktor research center, located in Novosibirsk, Siberia.

Sputnik V could also occur in Venezuela, according to Rodríguez, recalling the strong ties between Russia and the South American country.

“We are not only going to participate in the Sputnik V clinical trials, but we are also going to guarantee, thanks to the strategic cooperation between Venezuela and Russia, that we will participate in the safe supply for our people and also in the production of the vaccine in Venezuela, “he said.

However, it did not provide details of these plans to produce the vaccine.

Last August, Maduro said that his government is also “articulated” with the vaccines that are being developed in China and Cuba.
