The Hungarian National Institute of Pharmacology and Food Safety has recommended approving the use of the Russian Sputnik V coronavirus vaccine.
It is reported by the Hungarian news portal Index, citing sources.
It is noted that all that remains is to obtain data from laboratory and other studies of the National Center for Public Health, after which mass deliveries of the drug from Russia can be established.
Earlier it was reported that Hungary became the first European country to receive samples of the Russian coronavirus vaccine for clinical trials. On November 19, 2020, a sample of the Sputnik V vaccine was delivered to Hungary.
Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Siyarto said that the authorities expect to localize part of the production of the Russian vaccine on their territory.
