Sputnik V vaccine consist of two shots that have been designed by manufacturers to bear the surface protein or spike gene for SARS-CoV-2 inducing COVID-19, with various types of adenoviruses, both of which are triggering a common cold. According to previous findings in The Lancet Medical Journal, which were lauded by Moscow to counter opponents, this vaccine developed an antibody response for all those interested in early stage studies. The findings of the two trials, performed in June-July of this year with 76 volunteers, showed that 100% of volunteers developed new coronavirus antibodies and had no significant negative effects, said The Lancet. However, the findings of Lancet Medical Journal were criticized by a panel of foreign science analysts, who claimed that certain findings seemed doubtful. Amid the possible vaccine data, the Russian Coronavirus Response Centre, said on Sunday, had reported 5,449 COVID-19 in the last 24 hour taking the overall number to 1,062,811.
