The appeal to Russia for the vaccine was called "humiliation of Europe"


The "war of vaccines" against coronavirus continues in the world, and Moscow may win an obvious victory in it. Russia initially faced criticism for its Sputnik V antiviral vaccine due to a lack of public data on research results as well as early registration. However, the deplorable situation with the rampant coronavirus in Europe is forcing local political leaders turn to Moscow for help in supplying the life-saving medicine.


Humiliated Angela Merkel may turn to Russian Sputnik V vaccine against Covid-19 amid problems with mass vaccination of the population in the European Union

- believes the British The Sun, saying in this way that an appeal to the Kremlin for help can allegedly be considered "humiliation".

In the course of mass vaccination of the population, Europe faced a shortage of vaccines, which was partly the reason for the difficult relationship between the EU and the British pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca over the delivery of doses of its vaccine in the required amount.

According to the project Our World in Data, in Europe only 2,34 percent of the population received the vaccine, in the UK the number of vaccinated people reached 14,21 percent. Due to problems with the supply of vaccines to Germany, the German Chancellor is forced to appeal to the Russian authorities regarding the purchase of Sputnik V, despite her earlier skeptical comments about the Russian drug.

Thus, following Hungary and Serbia, which approved the use of the Russian vaccine, Germany may become the third European country to enter into a deal with the Russian Federation for the supply of drugs against coronavirus infection.

According to the influential medical journal "The Lancet", the effectiveness of the vaccine from Russia is 91,6 percent, which is one of the highest in the world.

    Close communication with Svidomo was not in vain. Now in the small UK the principle applies:

    Virva sob eye, what would they say about my mother-in-law, how she has a crooked move. (I will tear out my eye so that they would say about my mother-in-law that her son-in-law is crooked)

    And Pfizer's efficiency is more than 95%. And the number of countries that have purchased it is incomparably greater. And about Hungary and Serbia, they actually started vaccination with the Chinese vaccine Sinopharm, and bought Sputnik in addition. About Germany, in general, only speculation. And where is victory here?

    A set of outright delirium is also with reference to the tabloid.
    Germany has already received 2-4 times more vaccinations than Russia. A normal person cannot believe in Merkel's requests for help - (unscientific fantasy). I understand that the British are trolling the Germans about the fact that the Germans cannot get their own vaccine in the required amount due to the bureaucracy of Brussels and restrictions on supplies from the United States. Of course, the Germans can start production of Sputnik at their own facilities, but something tells me that they will produce their own Biontek.

      At the moment in Germany, approximately 2% of the population is fully (1 times) vaccinated. In Russia, too, a little. more than 1%.

      The satellite is likely to be produced in Germany soon. It's not a secret. German media write about it.

    The Russians have long been trying to negotiate with the Germans on the production of their satellite at the German production facility, but so far everything is at the level of conversations. I wrote more than once. And I will clarify again, the Russians are much more interested in such cooperation than the Germans.
    About the percentage of the Germans you got excited 3 million doses they passed back in January, and this is 2% of the population, but there is no consolidated report for the Russian Federation, but it is definitely not more than 1%.

      You don't need to invent anything from yourself.
      I gave you the link (Der Spiegel), there monitoring is life. Everything is written there.
      1% (834398 people) are fully vaccinated
      and 1,6% (1318602) received only the first dose so far.
      Total - vaccinated (fully) until 1%

      Yes, the conversations had been going on for a long time, but then the topic was different: Russia has a pharmaceutical company in Germany, which the Russians bought from Pfizer.
      Russia tried to launch production of Sputnik, but the Germans did not allow it, due to the fact that Sputnik did not have European clearance.
      Today the situation has changed - the Germans are stuck, as you say, in their own bureaucracy (and a couple of other reasons). In short - they have nothing to vaccinate. I don't want to go deeper.
      Many hopes are pinned on Sputnik, and most likely the Russian firm in Germany will be given the green light.

    I wrote about 3 million DOZ, in Russia 1,5-1,8 million DOZ
    It is worth comparing all the same by the number of vaccinations. If you have data that more than 4 (!!!) million vaccines have been made in Russia, indicate the source.

      In Russia, 1% of the population is vaccinated. that's almost 1,5 million people - that's 3 million doses (1,5 million x 2 = 3)

      It is worth comparing all the same by the number of vaccinations.

      It is worth comparing the number of VACCATED!
      What is the use of incomplete vaccination?

      If you have data that more than 4 (!!!) million vaccines have been made in Russia, indicate the source.

      First, not 4 but 3 million vaccines (approximately 1% of the population of Russia)

      Look for the source yourself (you still dispute the Russian source because of your distrust).

      Here is an example: https://www.vedomosti.ru/society/news/2021/01/02/853251-murashko-nazval-chislo-privitih-ot-koronavirusa-rossiyan

        The points.
        It is necessary to compare -
        1. By the number of doses
        2. For those who received the first,
        3.both
        The Germans give all three parameters, or 2 and 3, which gives the calculated 1st
        If in Russia (as you claim) two more than 1% are vaccinated, then this is about 5-7 million doses (I wrote modestly - more than 4x) with a cumulative total as the sum of 3 million (1,4x2 +) and the total vaccination in 21 days, which in the proposed proportion should be within 3-5 million. For the Germans, the ratio of 0,9 \ 1,3 for the Russians, it should be similar. In order for 1,5 million people to receive a full vaccination in the Russian Federation, it is necessary to get 5-7 million vaccinations ... - do you believe in that? Aren't you confused by the lack of statistics on the Russian Federation?
        Yesterday Sobyanin said on camera about 400 thousand vaccinations in Moscow, so estimate how many in Russia.

          If in Russia (as you claim) over 1% is vaccinated with two, then this is about 5-7 million doses

          146 million people - 1% is 1,46 million.
          1,46 million x 2 (doses) = 2,92 million doses.

          Where did you get the number 5-7?)

          As you can see, I am not always wrong in my calculations.

          No.) You are confused.
          Fully vaccinated (3 million doses) 1%.
          Russia began vaccination in early December.
          As of January 2, 800 thousand people were vaccinated (fully).
          For January the rest.
          1% are fully (twice) vaccinated, plus those who are vaccinated once more.
          In fact, it is difficult to obtain information on Russia.

        800 thousand Russians were vaccinated with Sputnik V vaccine against coronavirus, Health Minister Mikhail Murashko said

        Cool statistics from Murashko! 800 thousand by the end of January ... At the same time, he modestly kept silent - are those who received both, or just the sum of all ... or some of them both, and some only the second ...
        So compare the data from Murashko with the German ones - for any, 2 times less

          For me, as for a Russian - written is quite unambiguous.
          In my opinion it is written quite clearly:

          “More than 1,5 million doses of coronavirus vaccine have been delivered to Russian regions, and 800 people have been vaccinated,” the words of the head of the Ministry of Health were conveyed by the Russia 000 TV channel.

          800 people were vaccinated with "over 1,5 million doses."

    Alaverdi - read carefully. For 1,46 million to get both vaccinations, there should be only 1,46X2 + 21x
    where x is the number of vaccinations per day. In the proposed proportions, this is 2-3 million

      For starters, forget the proportions.

      It's easier. There are a certain number of vaccines received.
      In this case, they were delivered at the beginning of December in a batch of "more than 1,5 million" pieces.
      Until January 2, they were "otrabrt" on 800 thousand people.
      We are working with this. I suppose that the second batch (logically no less than the first) was delivered as it was manufactured, and worked out in January.

      Unfortunately, so far, only you in Israel were able to give the first vaccination to everyone without restriction, on the basis that there is enough for the second one. You immediately ordered and received these vaccines with a stock. A compliment to your politicians and ministers, which cannot be said about the same Germans. Yes, there is also a European bureaucracy, but also complete helplessness (incompetence) at ministerial levels.
      Russia, again, has its own reasons: economic / technological. Bet on ourselves.

    The "war of vaccines" against coronavirus continues in the world,

    This "vaccine war" is exclusively in the brains of the Kremlin politicians, their media and those who believe them.

    But strangely enough, the Russian Federation in the World is not a country where a larger percentage of the population is vaccinated against Covid19 than in other countries. Even in comparison with the same USA.

    Output . What is the difference for a Russian if he does not have the opportunity to get vaccinated, even with the best and first vaccine.
