BREAKING NEWS…Russian President Vladimir Putin confirms potency of corona virus vaccine
Written by admin on August 11, 2020
Russian President Vladimir Putin has said that one of his daughters received the country’s new coronavirus vaccine and is doing well.
According to reports, it is rare for Putin to mention his daughters – the president is known to carefully guard his family’s privacy, and has always refused to give details about the lives of his daughters, or even confirm media reports that their names are Maria Vorontsova and Katerina Tikhonova.
However, the mention of his own daughter highlights how keen Russia is to convince a sceptical world that its vaccine is safe and effective.
During televised remarks announcing that the vaccine had been registered, he said: “[The vaccine] creates a stable antibody and cellular immunity, and I know this very well, because one of my daughters had such an injection.”
He said that after her first injection his daughter’s temperature went up to 38C (100F) before falling to 37C. “And that was all. After the second injection, her temperature also rose slightly, but then went away, and she feels well.”
