The Sputnik Light coronavirus vaccine can halve the risk of infection. The director of the Research Center for Epidemiology and Microbiology named after V.I. Gamalei Alexander Gintsburg announced on the air of the Vesti Nedeli program on the Russia-1 TV channel.
He noted that Light is the first component of Sputnik V.
“If used separately without a second vaccination, it makes it possible to reduce the disease with this infection by 50 percent, or even 60,” said Gunzburg.
As a reminder, on March 29, the Gamaleya Center submitted documents to the Russian Ministry of Health for registration of the Sputnik Light vaccine. In the near future, specialists will conduct an examination of the quality, safety and effectiveness of the drug.
Earlier it was reported that “Sputnik Light” can be used to increase immunity in those who have already had coronavirus.
