Just a heads up about SPUTNIK-V, the Russian vaccine:
Russian Health Ministry says catching Covid-19 is far more dangerous than any possible side effects from world's first vaccine
Oops.. ID2020 anyone?
Perhaps, or perhaps that statement of real time monitoring was purely in relation to vaccine trial test subjects.
A little more about the Russian "vaccine" (Sputnik V ") from the corona:
- Completed only the SECOND phase of her clinical trials (there should be 4 phases in total). So all this information about the purchase of supposedly MILLIONS of doses is 100% fake (or just an attempt to steal money allocated by the state). It takes several more months (at least) to complete the 3rd and 4th phases of research, and only after the 4th phase it will be possible to draw any conclusions about the effectiveness. And only after the 4th phase (if the vaccine is effective) it will be possible to sell it to someone in MILLIONS of doses.
- The "vaccine" will be produced by Binnopharm JSC, 74% of the shares of this enterprise belong to AFK Sistema. The owner of AFK Sistema is the Russian billionaire oligarch Yevtushenkov.
- the first to receive this vaccine (after all four phases) will be MEDICINES and TEACHERS - these are the words of the Minister of Health of the Russian Federation Murashko.
- In 4-6 months the vaccine is planned to be tested on children.
There are also such packaging options (perhaps these are "pre-production")
- the vaccine itself consists of two components, which are administered by injection. Here are all the technical details (in Russian) -
Что известно о зарегистрированной российской вакцине от COVID-19: состав, противопоказания, побочные эффектыСведения о российской вакцине "Гам-КОВИД-Вак" ("Спутник V") изложены в инструкции к ее применению. Из нее следует, что 38 взрослых добровольцев, которые участвовали в клинических испытаниях, столкнулись со 141 побочным эффектом.www.newsru.com
Everything I've seen about the orders has said only that countries have gone ahead and put them in. That doesn't mean that the deals are done, the money's been exchanged, and the goods were delivered.
But they still can't pour the substances into ampoules and say to vaccinate everyone NOW (tomorrow or in two weeks).
There are quite strict medical protocols (preclinical studies in animals, clinical studies - 4 phases, then consideration of all results by the ministry of health). In the usual way, the journey from a molecule to a real drug takes SEVERAL YEARS.
Even now, when they are doing everything according to accelerated procedures (due to the "pandemic"), registration will take several months. This is in the best case if there are no SEVERE side effects with this vaccine.
In addition, the same Binnopharm JSC (developer Sputnik V) has 4 more variants of the "vaccine" against the corona, that is, only 5 variants are tested in parallel.
In addition, there are other pharmaceutical companies in Russia that want to grab their piece of the pie (a lot of money at stake) - they have their own "vaccine" options.
So far I do not quite understand the whole point of this game around the "vaccine", because the Russian economy is in a knockout, because it is completely focused on the export of raw materials (oil and gas). And until other countries (to which Russia exports) recover, Russia will also suffer (with or without a vaccine).
Where has the Russian government said that they're ready to vaccinate everyone now with the vaccine they're working on? As far as I've read they've still got a ways to go, but the methods that they're using to develop their vaccine is based on tested principles so they're not working from scratch like Western manufacturers are. Not saying it's any safer, just a faster approach. The comments on this article and the other article linked in the comments address this: Sputnik V, world's first Covid-19 vaccine, launched - Putin's daughter among first to take it - Vaccine will NOT be mandatory in Russia -- Sott.net
As far as the purpose of the vaccine development game and more specifically Russian focus on it, I think it has to do with - as mentioned in the comments in the article linked above - giving people a sense of safety so that the markets open back up. It's not really about the virus, but about giving the Russian and possibly other world governments an excuse to get life back to relative normality so that their economies don't completely crumble.
