The Bavarian authorities have expressed their readiness to purchase 2.5 million doses of the Russian Sputnik V coronavirus vaccine, if the drug is approved by the European Medicines Agency (EMA), TASS reports.
According to the Prime Minister of the region Markus Söder, a preliminary supply agreement has been prepared and will be signed with R-Pharm in Illertissen on 7 April.
It is noted that if “Sputnik V” is allowed in Europe, Bavaria may receive 2.5 million doses of the drug in July. This will expand the region’s ability to vaccinate the population against coronavirus, Söder said.
Earlier it was reported that Berlin imposed a curfew from April 2 from 21.00 to 5.00. At this time, no more than two people can be on the street together.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel announced the extension of quarantine in the country until April 18.
