Sputnik V coronavirus vaccine to Europe's rescue: large caliber, but little ammunition
is lately synonymous with good news.
Especially for Russia, which presented it last year saying it would be "reliable and efficient like a kalashnikov."
Specialists have concluded that the first Russian vaccine is safe and effective.
Dozens of countries around the world have been interested and the EU has begun to examine it to approve its use in the face of the current insufficient dose.
But for now, Russia, which is also slow in terms of the percentage of the vaccinated population, lacks the necessary production capacity for Sputnik V to change the situation in Europe.
The Russian vaccine is a high-caliber weapon, but with little ammunition.
The Kremlin funded
research and testing
last year in a race against time to shine in the new 'vaccine diplomacy' by supplying its creation on international markets.
But production plants cannot be improvised.
Russia must now rely on plants in Brazil, India and South Korea if it is to meet the goal of vaccinating nearly a tenth of the world's population.
But this outsourcing also takes time and the vaccines that Moscow boasts come with a dropper.

The coronavirus is "particularly attracted" to blood group A
, the virus that causes
, feels "particularly attracted" by antigen blood group found in respiratory cells, suggests a study published in the journal Advances Blood.
Although it is necessary, according to the authors, to continue researching to understand the influence that blood type has on
, this article adds to the findings of previous studies that already pointed to a possible relationship between blood type and susceptibility and severity of the aforementioned disease.
To reach their conclusions, researchers in the now published study evaluated a protein on the surface of the
called the receptor-binding domain, or RBD.
RBD -which is within the Spike protein- is the part of the virus that adheres to host cells, making it an important research objective to understand how infection occurs, the American Society of Hematology explains in a statement. .
In laboratory experiments, the team analyzed how
interacted with each blood type.
They found that it had a "strong preference" to bind to
blood group A
found in respiratory cells;
however, he did not show a predilection for red blood cells of blood group A, nor for other blood groups found in respiratory cells or red blood cells.
The US registers less than 40,000 daily cases of choroanvirus for the first time in months
The United States on Thursday recorded fewer than 40,000 new

This number peaked at nearly 300,000 new cases on January 8 in the country hardest hit by the
