Moscow, Aug 3 (Prensa Latina) Russia will produce hundreds of thousands of monthly doses of its domestically-produced vaccine against the Covid-19 pandemic this year and more than a million in 2021, the Minister of Industry and Commerce Denis Manturov declared on Monday.
 
Manturov explained that at first the volume will depend on the demand of the national health system, but starting next year they could reach several million monthly doses of the new vaccine.

In addition, he indicated that the country could export several hundred artificial respiration devices, although without reaching the nearly 600 sold to Uzbekistan and Italy, but talks are taking place with Egypt, Belarus, Israel, India, Peru and others, as quoted by TASS.

The declarations came when the country reached the mark of 856,264 positive cases of SARS-CoV-2, 5,394 of them in the last 24 hours, which leaves the daily figure below six thousand for the fourteenth consecutive day.

A total of 3,420 patients were discharged on Sunday, for a cummulative of 653,593 medical discharges.

With this, the national recovery rate exceeds 76 percent, said the Russian operational staff in the fight against Covid-19.
