Russia names its coronavirus vaccine “Sputnik V”

The vaccine against coronavirus developed by Russia was named “Sputnik V”, in honor of the Soviet satellite, announced the president of the sovereign wealth fund involved in the project.

“More than a billion doses have been ordered by 20 countries,” said Kirill Dmitriev, before pointing out that phase 3 of the tests will begin on Wednesday. The sovereign wealth fund indicated that industrial production is expected to start in September.
