As different countries of the world are trying to develop a potential COVID-19 vaccine, Russias president Vladimir Putin launched world’s first COVID-19 vaccine on Tuesday (August 11). Putin informed that one of his two daughters has received a shot of the vaccine and is feeling well.
During a press conference with government ministers Putin said, This morning, for the first time in the world, a vaccine against the new coronavirus was registered in Russia. I know that it works quite effectively, forms strong immunity, and I repeat, it has passed all the needed checks. As per Russian news agencies, the vaccine is said to ?work effectively? and also ?forms sustainable immunity.
Putin applauded the scientists involved in development of the vaccine and thanked everyone who were part of the process describing it to be a very important step for the world. Hoping that the countrys research body will soon begin with the mass production, Putin asked Health Minister Mikhail Murashko to keep him informed about the latest developments regarding the same.
The vaccines registration is conditional and trails for the same will continue while the production is underway informed the Murashko, who had earlier said that mass vaccinations could begin in October but risk groups, which include medical workers, may be offered the doses this month.
Putin has directed the government to ensure appropriate funding for its development, noting up to 60% of Russians should be vaccinated against the virus. The vaccine, which has been developed by the Gamaleya National Research Centre of Epidemiology and Microbiology and Russain Defence Ministry showed immunity in all participants, the Russian Defence Ministry said.
Clinical trials of the potential vaccine began on June 18, which included 38 volunteers. All the participants, who divided into two groups, developed immunity. After the successful trail, the first group was discharged on July 15 and the second group on July 20.

Shashi Tharoor is capable of bringing Congress back in power, says Congress leader Ashish Deshmukh
Former MLA and Member of Parliamentary Board, MPCC Dr Ashish Deshmukh speaking about the nomination filed by Congress MP Shashi Tharoor for the post of Congress President on Friday, said, “Dr Shashi Tharoor is a popular Congress MP who has done remarkable work for the nation at the international level. It’s very welcoming thing that the election of Congress President is being done in a democratic manner. This is an important step for decentralisation in the party and the future of Congress is bright. Soniaji and Rahulji Gandhi contributed a lot to strengthen the party.”
Congress leader Deshmukh added, “This is an important step taken by the Congress elites for the elections in a democratic manner so that the party can take a higher flight. Dr Shashi Tharoor has cordial relations with everyone in the party; he has the ability to give a new direction to the party. I believe that he will be able to handle the responsibility of bringing the Congress to power in the country by taking the party forward with new strength. If he seriously deals with issues like unemployment, industry, agriculture, inflation then Congress will have fruitful days. By doing transparent politics, he will definitely convey the thought of Congress to the people at the grassroots level. If you want a rejuvenated, bigger and dynamic Congress party, Dr. Shashi Tharoor is the right candidate. He has the open support of Congress delegates in 12 states and is getting the support of Congress leaders and activists from all over India. He will be elected for sure.”
Deshmukh informed that Tharoor would be visiting Nagpur on October 1 and 2 to hear out all thoughts of Congress delegates.
Nagpur citizens to revel The Raaas Garba next year!
Since The Raaas enchanted and enthralled Nagpur with its quality garba in its first year in 2018, the demand for encore has been reverberating the city. To cater to the huge public demand, the organisers of the king of garbas have decided to continue The Raaas next year on. Like its first year, The Raaas Garba will be presented to Nagpur in association with Nation Next in 2023. Mahesh Kukreja, the key organiser said, “Because of some reasons, we, earlier, thought of giving the event a break.”
He added, “Then COVID-19 struck the world. Now we plan to continue it from next year onwards. While I express my gratitude to Nagpurians to make the event a huge hit, I request the city’s garba revellers to not get fooled as a few garbas are falsely claiming to be The Raaas. We’ll be back next year for sure!”
