Nur-Sultan is in queue for Russian vaccine, and Tashkent is choosing between Russian and Chinese

The world is seriously tired of the pandemic. Countries and governments are tired of the economic crisis caused by the coronavirus, while ordinary people cannot get used to the fact that they are now doomed to stay home and not travel to other countries. There are two categories of people for whom being at home is worse than captivity. These are labor migrants, whose work is outside their countries, as well as those who like travel and tourism adventure. Coronavirus helped us to learn that there are dozens and even hundreds of millions of such people in the world.

It is truly said that movement is life. Therefore, any reports of any serious progress in the fight against COVID-19 are sensations that lead to decision-making at the state level.

Just yesterday, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the registration of the world’s first Russian vaccine against the coronavirus, which will appear in circulation no earlier than January 1, 2021, and today, according to messages, a number of countries are expressing desire to purchase a vaccine or, at least, not to be mistaken in choosing a drug …

The desire to free their countries from the chains imposed by the pandemic as soon as possible is understandable. Thus, President of Kazakhstan, Kassym-Jomart Tokayev sent a congratulatory telegram to President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin on the registration of the world’s first vaccine against COVID-19 novel coronavirus.

In addition, Tokayev informed “In the second half of August, a governmental delegation will go to Moscow to discuss the purchase of Russian vaccines”. Well, it is understandable, states as people, if you late, you may be at the end of the line.

Relevant news came from Uzbekistan as well. Thus, Rustam Ikramov, a member of the operational staff of the Cabinet of Ministers, said that Uzbek specialists are studying the possibility of using vaccines against COVID-19 coronavirus created in Russia.

Besides, the Uzbek neighbors had a more diversified approach to this issue. Thus, according to Ikramov, Uzbekistan is also exploring the possibility of using a Chinese vaccine against coronavirus.

“Proposals for the use of vaccines produced in Russia and China are currently being studied,” Ikramov said. He added that on outcomes of the ongoing negotiations, the government will be provided with information on the possibility of using the Russian vaccine in Uzbekistan.

Reading all this news, you involuntarily say to yourself: “May God give it us”. Maybe the era of the coronavirus is coming to its end? And next year, we will remember masks, quarantines and other restrictions as attributes of an unexpected but very dangerous adventure.
