Breaking news: Putin says Russia has “registered” COVID-19 vaccine

Russia President Vladimir Putin says the country has developed an effective vaccine against COVID-19.

If true, the vaccine would be the world’s first.

Putin made the announcement on Russian state TV.

We’ll see. Putin says the vaccine was developed by the Moscow-based Gamaleya Institute. CNN, which reported the news this morning, said Putin announced that one of his daughters has been innoculated with the vaccine. He said she had a slight temperature right after she was vaccinated.

Some scientists, particularly those in the West, fear that Russia has gone too fast in developing the vaccine, and cut too many corners.

Stay tuned. Either way, it will be interesting.
