Well. Personally, I totally agree with the view that the conditions and scrutiny for admitting this vaccine shall be the same as for other producers, but Russian producer thinks otherwise and thereby withholds important information. They obviously try to force other countries to use this on the basis of plain belief that it works as marketed. And these antics about requesting it to be sent back, well… If they fully refund it too, I guess it should be OK. We learned something new about vaccine politics here though.
I also think this whole story will have further repercussions and reverberations in the upcoming debate with and in German govt which seems to be interested in this vaccine too. Certainly it’s not a very good marketing there. Let’s see what the German regulator says…
1) Ha-ha, classic.
2) Ha-ha, I live here.
3) Oh fuck, I really do live here, don’t I?..
On a serious note, the propaganda around vaccines is real, there are even speaker announcements in subway along the lines of “vaccinate, help to stop the spread of the virus”.
@academicalnerd Well, unfortunately this is being turned into a geopolitical influence weapon - from my PoV primarily Sputnik, but certainly not only that. I think that is very unfortunate. Ironically, the Russian agency finished their final tweet on this story like this: “1) screw you idiot!, 2) Together we are stronger.” What fun is this!
