Brazilian state of Parana for producing Covid-19 vaccine with Russia
Brasilia, Aug 11 (Prensa Latina) The government of the Brazilian state of Parana will sign an agreement with Russia to produce the 'Sputnik V' vaccine against Covid-19, as revealed by the director of the Parana Institute of Technology (TECPAR), Jorge Callado.
'The investigation will advance as the information is shared. If everything happens within the planned protocols, the distribution should not occur before the second half of 2021,' Callado said.
'Before liberation there is no possibility of putting anything into practice. I reiterate that prudence and security are keywords in this process,' he said.
Russian President Vladimir Putin reported just hours ago that the vaccine is the first to be registered in the world.
'This morning, for the first time in the world, a vaccine against the coronavirus has been registered,' Putin said during a videoconference with members of his government broadcasted on television.
'I know that it is quite effective, that it provides long-lasting immunity', he added.
The agreement must be signed tomorrow by the governor of Parana, Junior Mouse, and the Russian ambassador Sergei Akopov.
