Mexico would be interested in participating in the final phase of clinical trials of a Russian coronavirus vaccine, foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard said. A week ago, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the registration of the world's first COVID-19 vaccine. Its Clinical trials have not yet been completed.
Mexico ranks seventh in the world in the number of cases of infection. Coronavirus in the country infected more than 530 thousand people, died more than 57 thousand.
вЂњI am grateful to Russian Ambassador Viktor coronel for his visit to our Ministry. We discussed the Sputnik V vaccine. I expressed our interest in participating in the third phase. This would allow us to expect to receive the vaccine in Mexico in a shorter time, вЂњ the Mexican foreign minister wrote on Twitter.
