Production of Sputnik V supports efforts of India’s authorities to leave behind the acute phase of C-19 virus as soon as possible while the vaccine will also be exported at a later stage to help prevent the spread of the virus in other countries around the world.”

Dr Rajesh Jain, MD, for Panacea Biotec, said, “This marks a significant step as we initiate production of Sputnik V. Together with RDIF, we hope to help bring a sense of normalcy back to people across the country and around the world.”
