From our point of view, so the vaccine is correct, first, because there is no evidence as which parts of the virus to use correctly, and secondly, the technology for creating vaccines consist of whole have long been developed and successfully used for several decades. Planned for early August to complete preclinical trials of its own vaccine, and in January 2021 after successful completion of clinical trials we can talk about large-scale production of vaccines, for which we have our own production”, – he said.
