    BREAKING: Russia claims world’s first Covid-19 vaccine; Putin’s daughter vaccinated

    Earlier, Russia said it hoped to launch mass production within weeks and turn out "several million" doses per month by next year

    Russia has claimed to develop the first vaccine offering “sustainable immunity” against the coronavirus, President Vladimir Putin announced Tuesday.

    Moscow has christened its new coronavirus vaccine “Sputnik V” after the Soviet satellite.

    “This morning, for the first time in the world, a vaccine against the new coronavirus was registered” in Russia, Putin said during a televised video conference call with government ministers.

    “One of my daughters had this vaccine. I think in this sense she took part in the experiment,” Putin informed.

    Earlier, Russia said it hoped to launch mass production within weeks and turn out “several million” doses per month by next year.

    The World Health Organization also asked Russia to follow established guidelines and go “through all the stages” necessary to develop a safe vaccine.
