Russia’s Sputnik vaccine efficacy at 95%, to be cheaper than US vaccines
25-11-2020 Wed 09:11
Russia’s Sputnik V Covid-19 vaccine, which reported efficacy of over 95%, will be twice as cheap as those by Pfizer and Moderna with similar positive results. Sputnik V will be priced under $20 per person for the two doses in global markets, including India, and may be available here by February. The vaccine is still to undergo trials in India and will be manufactured by domestic companies.
Hyderabad-based Dr Reddy’s and RDIF have entered into a partnership to conduct clinical trials and distribute it in India. Though the vaccine has a price advantage against the above two firms, there could be a challenge in its distribution as it requires a specialised cooling chain, experts say.
