Coronavirus vaccine update: Day after AstraZeneca-Oxford admitted a manufacturing error in their experimental coronavirus vaccine, Russia said the UK company should try combining its Covid-19 vaccine with the Sputnik V to boost efficacy.
The developers of the Russian coronavirus vaccine have called on AstraZeneca to try combining its vaccine, developed by the Oxford University, with its Sputnik V to boost efficacy. The Russian coronavirus vaccine developers suggested AstraZeneca to try combining vaccines a day after the UK company and the Oxford University acknowledged a manufacturing error which has raised questions about preliminary results of their experimental coronavirus vaccine.
AstraZeneca admitted a manufacturing error a few days after it said the late-stage trials of its coronavirus vaccine were “highly effective” in preventing disease. A coronavirus vaccine developed by AstraZeneca and the University of Oxford prevented 70% of people from developing the Covid-19 infection in late-stage trials, the team reported Monday.

Russia had earlier said its Sputnik V coronavirus vaccine is 92 per cent effective at protecting people from Covid-19.
