MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Argentina became the first Latin American country to start production of the Russian coronavirus vaccine Sputnik V, which can be exported to countries in Central and Latin America in the future, the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) said in a statement.
It is noted that RDIF and partners had carried out a technology transfer for Laboratorios Richmond, the first batch produced will be delivered to Gamaleya Institute for drug quality control.
“We are very excited about the possibility of producing Sputnik V in Argentina, a vaccine with which we are already protecting a large part of our population with excellent results. It will be a great opportunity to advance in the fight against the pandemic not only in Argentina but also in Latin America,” Argentine President Alberto Fernandez said, as quoted by the fund.
