Russia plans to register the world's first Covid vaccine. Alexander Gintsburg, director of the Gamaleya National Research Centre, said that the vaccine used inanimate particles created on the basis of adenovirus. He said there are no concerns that the vaccine could potentially cause harm to a person's health.

Some people have a fever when the immune system receives a powerful boost but this side-effect can easily be overcome by taking paracetamol, he added.
