Russia is so confident in its own coronavirus vaccine that its inventors are ready to take legal responsibility for any serious side effects.
Kirill Dimitriev, head of state funding for the invention of the vaccine, said buyers would not have to bear the brunt of any side effects of the vaccine, and that a small portion would be taken by the inventors. The British news agency Reuters reported this information.
The decision by the Russian authorities could lead to costly compensation claims if the vaccine had any unintended side effects after use. In the case of many vaccines, the inventors want to avoid this responsibility. The inventors want full protection from compensation claims by claiming impunity for the countries to which these vaccines are sold.
As a result, Russia’s attitude of seeking compensation is different from that of many other countries in the world. In the United States, for example, the government has taken full responsibility for the coronavirus vaccine. This will allow the inventors to be safe there. Because if a vaccine can be invented against the disease, it will be considered as a benefit to the society.
There is intense competition around the world for the coronavirus vaccine. Several possible vaccines have already been tested on humans. However, Russia’s “Sputnik-V” vaccine is expected to go a long way in fighting for market side effects.
