Russia is currently the first country to successfully complete the clinical trials of coronavirus vaccine on human body. So when will this vaccine be produced for mass public?

Yesterday, the world was more than happy to read that Russia has completed its clinical trials of the world’s first coronavirus vaccine on human volunteers. People behind this success are scientists from Sechenov First Moscow State Medical University.

Coronavirus Vaccine 1
Everyone is now paying attention to Russia for its vaccine production stage.

Russian coronavirus vaccine would be publicly available in September 2020

This is marked as the turning point in the global battle against the pandemic when finally we have the first vaccine tested on human body after 6 months of the outbreak. Till date, more than 13 million people have been infected while nearly 58,400 people have died due to Covid-19. Russia is ranking number 4 with more than 727,000 confirmed cases.

The clinical trials were conducted on two groups of volunteers, showing positive results and corresponding to the safety of other vaccines on the market. The volunteers didn’t show any side effects of the vaccine as well as maintain a good immunity system against the virus.

Coronavirus Vaccine 2
The vaccine has been tested successfully on human volunteers.

The Russian coronavirus vaccine developers informed that the first group of volunteers would be discharged on July 15 while the other were on 20th. They are also deciding on further steps for the vaccine production.

According to reports, if there’s no unexpected change in the result of clinical trials, the Russian coronavirus vaccine would be mass-produced in September this year.

Russian public would also be injected this Covid-19 vaccine as soon as possible once it’s made available. The mass injection is expected to take place in the autumn, lasting for 6 months.

The race to coronavirus vaccine in the world

Following Russia, some other countries are also rushing to complete their coronavirus vaccine development. For example, some American companies in co-operation with foreign researchers have introduced antiviral remdesivir in Covid-19 treatment as well as experimental coronavirus vaccine. However, these products need large scale clinical trials on humans to be confirmed of their effectiveness.

Coronavirus Vaccine 3
Many drugs claimed to help Covid-19 treatment but haven't finished clinical trials yet.

If the clinical trial phase of this American vaccine later this month proves effective, they may get the approval for producing coronavirus vaccine by the end of 2020.

Another news comes from China where a type of coronavirus vaccine has been developed and claimed ‘safe.’ It is being used for Chinese military before applying to the mass public.

Though some countries have announced their vaccine candidates which are already in human trials, some scientists are skeptical about the availability of coronavirus vaccine in this year. Some researchers say the complete Covi-19 vaccine needs several years to develop and prove effective, that’s why they believe the vaccine would be available by the end of 2021 despite announcements from Russia or any nation above.

Coronavirus Vaccine 4
The exponential rise in confirmed cases demands a mass vaccine production right in 2020.
