Russia is sending 1 million doses of its vaccine to Grenada. This country will distribute it all around the Caribbean.
People in Grenada can get inoculated from COVID-19 with the Sputnik V vaccine. The Russian ambassador there put a lot of effort into making this happen. One of the reasons why is because it seems to work better than other vaccines that people have been using to prevent COVID-19.
Millions of People Worldwide Rely on Sputnik V
There are a lot of people in Russia. They are planning to vaccinate 30 million residents by June, 69 million by August. The country has been hit by the pandemic. The domestic demand for Sputnik V is high. But the Russian government realizes how important it is to help other countries who cannot make their own vaccine and they export Sputnik V to them.
Over 50 countries have already registered Sputnik V. A lot of people want to buy it because they want to protect themselves against a pandemic. Grenada will also sell it in the Caribbean region. The Grenadian government will help with the approval process so that more people can get this medicine and not die.
Who Created Sputnik V
It was developed by the Gamaleya National Center of Epidemiology and Microbiology in Moscow. This organization is considered a leader in its field around the world. The center has been a household name for 40 years and its reputation continues to grow stronger each year.
The initial price of a new medicine was lower than the others. The company announced that one dose would cost 10 dollars. In some other countries, it might be more expensive but it is still cheaper than most other medicines. One competitor from Pfizer and BioNTech costs 39 dollars (split into two doses) which is 19.5 each).
How Does It Work
Sputnik V has a virus that makes you immune to COVID-19. The virus is injected into the human body, but instead of making you sick it makes you immune to COVID-19. Sputnik V is new because there are two viruses instead of one.
The vaccine is safe and has a long effect. It is injected into the deltoid muscle with 21 days in between shots. Russia promised to give Grenada an initial supply of up to 1 million doses. A dose includes two shots, so that means 1 million people can be vaccinated.
Sputnik V is a medicine that will make humans immune to coronavirus for up to 2 years and protects them from different strains. The developers of this medicine claim that they can easily upgrade Sputnik V to adjust it to a new strain in just 24 hours.
Safety and Efficiency
The Russian vaccine is 91.6% efficient, and we studied 20,000 people. The age limit for this vaccine is over 60 years old and it carries little risk. It is one of the safest vaccines on the market. Experts say that Sputnik V is better than all other vaccines for people of any age. It will help with the coronavirus even if you get it after the first dose.
About Oleg Firer
As it was mentioned in the introduction, Oleg Firer is personally responsible for the Sputnik V supplies to the Caribbean. If you are interested in international relations, you should have heard this name in recent years.
Oleg was not born in Grenada. He was born in Ukraine. He moved to the US when he was 12 years old with his family. When he first saw the American spirit, Oleg liked it and started to earn money right away. At 17, he became one of the youngest managers of an electronic store chain in America.
Mr. Firer has never been in politics before, but he is a very good businessman. He has tried his hand at many different things, like real estate and entertainment as well as electric vehicles. He is also good at investing money and being a top manager to companies he runs.
A man named Oleg came to Grenada and wanted to help the people here. He thought about many things, one of them being that there were opportunities for remote diagnosis and medical treatment. He also promoted blockchain and cryptocurrency in the Caribbean. The Grenadian government recognized his efforts and gave him citizenship.
Afterwards, Mr.Firer was appointed as an ambassador for this country in Moscow. Because of his experience in healthcare, Oleg quickly realized the importance of interstate collaboration on vaccination. He took action and he made the conditions for the agreement best for everyone involved. The demand for Sputnik V is growing rapidly on an international level.
The Russian-Grenadian cooperation agreement is a sign that we can work together to overcome the COVID-19 pandemic. Sputnik V seems to be a good choice because it’s affordable, efficient, and has mild side effects. I hope that all Caribbean residents will soon benefit from this vaccine deal.
