‎The Federal Government on Thursday said it was monitoring developments concerning claims by Russia that it had developed a vaccine for the coronavirus disease.

Russian President, Vladimir Putin, had recently announced that his country’s scientists have come u‎p with a vaccine, named Sputnik-V, which he said had proved effective against the virus.

C‎hairman of the Presidential Taskforce PTF on COVID-19 and Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, at a press briefing in Abuja, said the Federal Government has taken note of the development.

‎Mustapha said, “Globally, the world continues to pursue the search for a vaccine with over 1,000 trials on-going and different claims of levels of success.

“We note particularly, the announcement by the President of Russia on the breakthrough in the development of a vaccine even as we study the developments.

“Fighting the pandemic successfully will take a global effort and Nigeria will not be left out whenever and where ever progress is made.

“However, the health and safety of Nigerians will always remain our priority in the pursuit of a solution.”

The SGF said ‎the Federal Government will remain focused on propagating the use of proven avoidance methods to break the transmission of the virus and effective case management to care for and treat infected persons.
