Russian President, Vladimir Putin on Tuesday disclosed that the country has developed a COVID-19 vaccine revealing how daughter was involved in the experimental development of the vaccine.
He made this announcement during a televised video conference call with government ministers on Tuesday.
Putin, during the conference, mentioned that one of his daughters was part of the vaccine development experiment.
“One of my daughters had this vaccine. I think in this sense she took part in the experiment,” Putin said.
The European nation has been working tirelessly for the quick development of the COVID-19 vaccine and has also stated earlier this month that the country hopes to begin mass production within weeks and several million doses per month by next year.
However, the World Health Organisation last week urged Russia to follow every protocol and guidelines and go through all the stages necessary to develop a safe vaccine.
