“Now they are coming to an end, the last days are going on clinical trials of a vaccine for people over 60 years old,” said Murashko on the air of the TV channel “Russia 24”.

He expressed the hope that the studies will be completed around December 23-24.

The Minister noted that after that the documents will be evaluated by experts and the testimony will be reviewed.

Earlier, Mikhail Murashko urged, despite the emergence of a vaccine against coronavirus infection, to continue to comply with measures to protect against COVID-19.
