Bangladesh approved Russia's Sputnik V COVID 19 vaccine.

Bangladesh approved Russia's sputnik the COVID-19 vaccination; the decision came after health authorities in Bangladesh stopped administering the first job of the Oxford – Astra Zeneca COVID-19 vaccine from Monday amid uncertainties over further shipments.

This vaccine is developed by Russia's Gamaleya Research Institute and will be the second vaccine used in Bangladesh. It is said to be an effective vaccine that can cater to restricting the spread of Covid 19. The directorate general of drug administration of Bangladesh has shown a green flag to the emergency use of Russia's sputnik V COVID 19 vaccine.

"We are expecting around 4 million vaccine doses to arrive in May," he added.

He also said that only a handful of pharmaceutical companies in Bangladesh have the appropriate facilities necessary to manufacture vaccines, which Russian representatives will evaluate.

According to Johns Hopkins University, Bangladesh has recorded 7,51,659 Covid-19 infections and 11,228 related deaths. Therefore having sufficient doses of vaccination is a priority.
