Experts urge caution over Russia’s coronavirus vaccine claim

Russia on Tuesday became the first country to clear a coronavirus vaccine and declare it ready for use, despite international scepticism.

Experts have urged caution over Russia’s coronavirus vaccine claim, saying they have seen no evidence that suggests it is safe and effective.

President Vladimir Putin said that one of his daughters has already been inoculated.

Mr Putin emphasised that the vaccine underwent the necessary tests and has proven efficient, offering a lasting immunity from the coronavirus.
