Russia has applied to the World Health Organization for accelerated registration and prequalification of its Sputnik V Covid-19 vaccine.

The Russian Direct Investment Fund, which finances the vaccine, said yesterday (27) that accelerated registration would make the Russian vaccine "available globally in a shorter time frame than usual procedures."

Some Western scientists have expressed concern over the Russian vaccine, with some warning that moving too quickly could be dangerous.

Russia has the fourth-highest virus caseload in the world, with a total of 1,547,774 registered infections and 26,589 deaths.
