Vaccines, Reality, and Russia

Russia has announced it now leads the world by being first with a tested, safe and effective vaccine against Covid-19.

Jokes (and there have been a few) aside, how real is this? Could this vaccine, or any other, be ready, tested, safe and effective anytime soon.

    • Payback – Time Limits
