Despite Russia’s claim to produce two or two vaccines against the corona virus, the infection rate is increasing day by day. On Sunday, the Corona virus in Russia became the record for the most reported cases in one day. Russian officials said 18,665 cases of the Corona virus had not been recorded in the country until Sunday. Of these, 5,261 cases were reported in the capital Moscow alone.
More than 1.6 million infected corona in Russia
With this, the total number of people infected with the corona virus in Russia reached 1,636,781. In the past 24 hours, 245 people have died from corona infection. At the same time, the number of people who have died from this epidemic in the country is 28,235. However, many experts have already expressed doubts that Russia is hiding the total number of its corona cases and presenting wrong numbers.
Russia claimed to manufacture a two-corona vaccine
On August 11, Russian President Vladimir Putin claimed to have created the world’s first vaccine against the corona virus, Sputnik-V. Subsequently, in October, Putin approved the second corona vaccine “EpiVacCorona” after an initial trial. Regarding the Sputnik-V vaccine, Putin also claimed that he accelerated the recovery and that his daughter received a dose.
Know the Sputnik V vaccine
The Sputnik V vaccine was developed by the Gamalaya Research Institute in Moscow in collaboration with the Russian Defense Ministry to base adenoviruses. The Russian vaccine is based on the common adenovirus which causes the common cold. This vaccine was created artificially. It mimics the structural proteins found in the SARS-CoV-2 corona virus, which produces the exact same immune response in the body following infection with the corona virus. That is, in a way, the human body reacts the same way it reacts when a corona virus infection occurs, but it does not have the fatal consequences of COVID-19.

Earlier on August 11, Russia announced that it had approved the world’s first vaccine against the corona virus, Sputnik V.
