Russia will make its Corona Virus vaccine Sputnik-V available for common people from this week. Sputnik-V is the first COVID-19 vaccine to be launched by any nation. It was launched by Russian President Vladimir Putin on August 11.

According to a report published in ZeeNews.com, the Russian Academy of Science deputy director Denis Logunov reported that the Sputnik-V vaccine would be released for wider use after permission from the Ministry of Health. The ministry is going to start the test of this vaccine in a few days and we will get its permission soon. It is worth noting that this vaccine has been prepared by the Gamalaya Research Institute of Moscow in collaboration with the Russian Ministry of Defense to make adenoviruses a base.

Must obtain permission

Logunov said that there is a definite procedure to authorize a batch of vaccines for civilian use. It has to pass the quality check of the medical watchdog Roszdravnadzor. Between 10 and 13 September, we have to obtain permission to issue a batch of vaccines for civilian use. After this, we will be in a position to release the vaccine to the general public. The vaccine will be distributed under the supervision of the Russian Ministry of Health.

High-risk priority

Logunov further said that in the distribution of the vaccine, priority will be given to such people who fall in the high-risk group. At the same time, according to the results published by The Lancet Medical Journal, Sputnik-V recorded another progress on Friday. The vaccine has been successful in generating antibody responses in all participants in early-stage trials. Two trials for Sputnik-V were conducted in June-July this year and included 76 participants. It is known that Vaccine Sputnik-V is named after Russia’s first satellite Sputnik, which was launched by Russia in 1957.

Thousands of people protesting over Kyrgyzstan election result

Kyrgyzstan Protest

Thousands of people are protesting in Kyrgyzstan over allegations of vote-buying and intimidation in Sunday’s parliamentary election. The capital Bishkek saw the largest protest while rallies were also held elsewhere in the ex-Soviet republic.

Only four parties out of 16 passed the 7% threshold for entry into parliament, three of which have close ties to President Sooronbai Jeenbekov. International monitors have said the claims of vote-buying are “credible”.

None of the established opposition parties got a seat in parliament. Now all of these parties have declared that they will not recognize the results of the election. Opposition candidates are calling on the Central Electoral Commission in Kyrgyzstan to cancel the results of the vote. One candidate, Ryskeldi Mombekov, told a crowd of more than 5,000 protesters: “The president promised to oversee honest elections. He didn’t keep his word.”

Mr. Mombekov’s party, Ata Meken, had been confident of entering parliament, but in the end, it was one of the eight parties that missed the threshold. Protesters are also calling on President Jeenbekov to resign. Thomas Boserup, head of the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe’s election observation mission, said in a briefing that although the vote had been “generally well organized”, allegations of vote-buying were a “serious concern”.

The two leading parties, which got a quarter of the vote each, were Birimdik and Mekenim Kyrgyzstan. President Jeenbekov’s younger brother, Asylbek Jeenbekov, is in Birimdik.

Mekenim Kyrgyzstan, meanwhile, is seen as being closely connected to the powerful Matraimov family. The family’s figurehead, Rayimbek Matraimov, is believed to have helped finance Mr. Jeenbekov’s successful presidential campaign in 2017.

Kayleigh McEnany

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany has tested positive for COVID-19 coronavirus. She has become the highest-ranking White House official to have contracted the virus after US President Donald Trump and the first lady tested positive.

The coronavirus has so far killed more than 200,000 Americans this year.

“After testing negative consistently, including every day since Thursday, I tested positive for COVID-19 on Monday morning while experiencing no symptoms,” McEnany said in a statement posted on Twitter.

No reporters, producers, or members of the press are listed as close contacts by the White House Medical Unit, she said.

“Moreover, I definitively had no knowledge of Hope Hicks diagnosis prior to holding a White House press briefing on Thursday,” she said, referring to her press meet in the White House while not wearing a mask.

“As an essential worker, I have worked diligently to provide needed information to the American People at this time. With my recent positive test I will begin the quarantine process and will continue working on behalf of the American People remotely,” McEnany said.

A close aide of the president and the first lady, Hicks was the first senior White House official last week to have tested positive. Soon thereafter Trump and his wife Melania tested positive.

To this end, the White House issued a statement to wish its president and all others struggling with the disease a speedy recovery.
