The UAE Ministry of Health and Prevention has approved the Russian Sputnik V coronavirus vaccine, the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) reported.
“The Sputnik V vaccine is registered in the UAE as part of an accelerated procedure based on the results of phase III clinical trials in Russia with the participation of more than 33 thousand people,” the foundation said.
“The United Arab Emirates has become the second country in the Middle East after Palestine to approve the use of Sputnik V, and this is very important,” said the head of RDIF Kirill Dmitriev at a briefing today. “The UAE has one of the best healthcare systems in the world and a very authoritative regulator. whose decisions are decisive for other states in the region. Therefore, the fact that the UAE has registered and intends to purchase our vaccine gives reason to believe that other countries will join next. “
It is also important, according to Dmitriev, that the UAE conducted studies on the effectiveness of the use of our vaccine in people of different ethnic origins – and the results were positive.
“There are many people with different ethnic origins in the UAE, so the study, which took place on the basis of Arab clinics, was very important,” Dmitriev said.
