According to RIA News citing sources in the parliament of San Marino, the parliament of the republic is going to consider the purchase of Sputnik V in the near future. Local Health Minister Roberto Ciavatta noted the readiness of the authorities to allocate funds for the purchase of the Russian drug.
In Europe, vaccination against COVID-19 has been ongoing for 45 days, but no drugs have arrived in San Marino. In January 2021, the local authorities signed an agreement with Italy to supply 50,000 doses of the vaccine, but deliveries have not started.
In San Marino, 3,317 people have been infected with the coronavirus since the beginning of the epidemic, according to the Worldometers portal. In addition, 2,993 people have coped with the disease, and 72 have died. In total, there are more than 33,000 people living in the country.
Canada recently acknowledged that the Sputnik V vaccine was a "scientific triumph". The drug has become an 'irritant in the vaccine race'.
