A preclinical trial of a new coronavirus vaccine has begun in Russia. The first stage of screening has been completed. Details were told by the correspondent of "MIR 24" Ivan Gorbatov.
A monument to doctors who died from COVID-19 was erected in St. Petersburg. The sculpture was made according to the sketches of the St. Petersburg artist - Roman Shustrov. He died of the coronavirus last year. There is a QR code next to the memorial. By scanning it, you can find out the names of all health workers who have died from COVID-19.
In St. Petersburg, the number of hospitalizations of patients with COVID-19 has sharply increased in a week, by almost 420%. Now there is a risk of a new increase in the incidence, but mass vaccination should help.
The first stage of preclinical studies of a new vaccine has been completed in Russia. The drug is being developed at the St. Petersburg Research Institute of Vaccines and Serums of the FMBA. The new drug induces immunity not through the activation of antibodies, but at the cellular level. According to doctors' forecasts, such immunity can last for years.
