Hungary has received 6,000 doses of the Russian Sputnik V coronavirus vaccine, Reuters reported.
In early December, the Hungarian side received the first samples of the Russian drug. Then the Hungarian doctors made sure that “Sputnik V” is produced taking into account the latest technologies and in accordance with the protocols of the World Health Organization.
In addition, Hungarian specialists came to Russia for a more detailed study of the coronavirus vaccine produced by the Gamaleya Research Center for Electrochemistry.
Earlier it was reported that Hungary is ready to explore the possibility of producing a vaccine against coronavirus on its territory. After a meeting with Russian Health Minister Mikhail Murashko, the country’s Foreign Minister Peter Siyarto said that negotiations are underway to adopt Russian production technology and localize production or a part of it.
