I would think twice about taking a cup of tea from Vladimir Putin. Putin’s enemies tend to suffer acute tea intolerance.
Is the Russian vaccine good?
It’s tested on 76 volunteers; phase 3 trials not done. A good vaccine is tested on 20,000-30,000 volunteers
We don’t know exact safety/efficacy. But we DO KNOW that for vaccines it’s more important be right than to be firsthttps://t.co/8EeCvVlqd9
