President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko said that obtaining his own, Belarusian vaccine against coronavirus is a matter of honor for the Ministry of Health and the National Academy of Sciences.
Lukashenko also inquired about the timing of the development of the Belarusian vaccine.
“We agreed that next year we will receive our own vaccine. Until that time, we will vaccinate almost all of our population – 60% at the first stage, ”he said.
The Belarusian president noted that additional vaccine production capacities are being created in the country, and it is possible that this product, created using Russian technology, will eventually be in demand not only in Belarus, but also in Russia itself.
Earlier it was reported that industrial production of the Russian vaccine against coronavirus Sputnik V on the basis of the Belmedpreparaty enterprise began in Belarus.
