The Republic of San Marino has received the first batch of the Russian Sputnik V coronavirus vaccine.
As reported on Instagram of the Russian Embassy in Italy and San Marino, the republic became the 30th state in the world to recognize the effectiveness of the Russian drug for the prevention of coronavirus.
Also in the message of the Russian embassy it is noted that the agreement between the government of San Marino and the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) on the supply of vaccines has become another confirmation of constructive interaction between the two countries.
Note that the population of San Marino – one of the smallest states in the world – is just over 30 thousand people. According to local authorities, the Russian drug will cover 15 percent of the need for doses for immunizing the population.
Earlier today it became known that the Sputnik V vaccine against COVID-19 was registered in Guyana.
According to Kirill Dmitriev, RDIF CEO, South American states continue to demonstrate high interest in the drug, which is one of the three world vaccines against coronavirus in terms of the number of approvals received by government regulators.
