Status of the Vaccine

There are some of the experts who are raising questions upon the stages involved in the testing of the vaccination.

Meanwhile, if the approvals are provided on time to the vaccine, it will become the very first vaccination available against coronavirus across the globe. 

Currently, there have been talks that the Russian University may also start trials of the vaccination on the humans of other countries such as China and Brazil to come up with better results.
