In the city of Pushchino, Moscow Region, the production of the AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccine has begun for export.

This was announced by the First Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade of Russia Vasily Osmakov. The pharmaceutical company “R-Pharm” is engaged in the release.

According to Osmakov, the use of domestic vaccines will continue in the domestic market. “Here and now, in the wake of a rush of demand, we are working with our own production facilities, we are supporting our pharma,” the official said.

One of the latest studies showed that the Russian Sputnik V vaccine was more effective than AstraZeneca and the Chinese Sinopharm against the delta coronavirus strain.

The analysis was carried out by Argentine scientists based on a study of 309 plasma samples from people who have recovered from coronavirus.
