Clinical trials of the world's first volunteer vaccine at Covid-19 carry the Moscow plaque. The first Sechenov State Medical University, agencies say, has successfully completed the tests. Vadim Tarasov, director of the Institute of Translational Medicine and Biotechnology, also provided dates for the volunteers' resignations. The two groups involved will return home on July 15th and July 20th.
Just a month away

The safety of the vaccine is confirmed. Corresponds to the safety of all vaccines that are currently on the market
“In a pandemic situation we acted not only as an educational institution but also as a center for scientific and technological research,” Tarasov noted.
Vaccine at Covid-19, the other "runners"
From the news that arrives, in short, it seems that Russia has "won the race" of the tests. The possible primacy of effectiveness remains to be assessed. However, there are many companies and institutions around the world that are trying to improve the production and development of a potential Covid-19 vaccine as soon as possible.
More than they are, according to news, the Covid-19 vaccine candidate is expected to BionTech SE and Pfizer Inc will seek regulatory approval by the end of 2020. The experimental vaccine, which has shown promising results, is expected to move to a large study involving 30.000 healthy participants by the end of the month, pending a regulatory hint.
