GUYANA MAY ASK RUSSIA FOR DEVELOPING COVID-19 VACCINE

As Guyana continues to grapple with the negative effects of the COVID-19 virus, the local health ministry may be seeking the help of Russia, who is currently developing what is considered the much-needed virus.

During a virtual press conference on Friday, Minister of Health Dr. Frank Anthony expounded that Guyana is only considering the Russian antidote as an option, even though several other countries are in the process of developing a cure.

He noted that once a second round of trials produces promising results, Guyana will be speaking to its Russian counterparts for form a possible deal.

Dr. Anthony said, “From the reviews we have seen in the Lancet, this vaccine seems to be safe but we will have to await the Phase 3 trials to see how this will pan outBut I think it is important that we engage early so that we have many options to choose from.”

The current state of affairs in Guyana illustrate that the total number of deaths recorded in the past four weeks are at 26. There were 20 deaths in the previous four months.
