Russia Claims To Have a COVID Vaccine, Refuses To Release Data

The US medical community has rejected Trump's belief that a vaccine could be ready by Election Day.

There are 25 vaccines currently in clinical trials and more than 100 more in development.

But this is not the space race, it's a worldwide pandemic and Putin is trying to claim victory.

Critics say the country's push for a vaccine is partly due to political pressure from the Kremlin.

CNN reports Putin and his team are keen to portray Russia as a global scientific force.

India's vaccine will help all humanity in fighting COVID: PM Modi at UNGA

While addressing the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) Prime Minister Narendra Modi assured that India's vaccine production and delivery capacity will be used to help all humanity in fighting COVID-19 crisis. "From India's Neighbourhood First Policy to our Act East Policy, as well as idea of security and growth for all in the region, or our views towards the Indo Pacific region, we have always worked for the interests of humankind and not driven by our own self-interests," said PM Modi "India's partnerships are always guided by this very principle. Any gesture of friendship by India towards one country is not directed against any third country," PM Modi added. "Even during these very difficult times of the raging pandemic, the pharmaceutical industry of India has sent essential medicines to more than 150 countries. As the largest vaccine producing country in the world, I want to give one more assurance to the global community today. India's vaccine production and delivery capacity will be used to help all humanity in fighting this crisis," Prime Minister further said at UNGA.
