"This could be the beginning of the end of the pandemic", he said. "At the moment, the data released today on the Sputnik vaccine looks to be the best in the field of the adeno-vectored vaccines", says Ian Jones, a virologist at the University of Reading.

"Evaluation of efficacy was carried out among volunteers (n = 18,794) 28 days after receiving the first dose (seven days after the second dose) of the vaccine or placebo upon reaching the second control point", it said. The post-registration clinical trials began on August 25 and the first batch of the vaccine was dispatched to Russian regions on September 12, according to the TASS report.

Sputnik V will cost less than $20 in worldwide markets for a two-shot course of treatment, making it cheaper than foreign competitors produced by Pfizer Inc. and Moderna Inc., the RDIF said Tuesday.
