The formation by Belarusian specialists of the full technological cycle for the production of vaccines against COVID-19 in the Ministry of Health of Russia, the head of the department Mikhail Murashko confirmed on Wednesday on the sidelines of the 34th meeting of the Council for Cooperation in the Field of Health of the Commonwealth of States, informs BelTA…
The Minister recalled in connection that “Russian direct interaction is directly on foreign markets. As for Sputnik Light,” he said, this drug is necessary for the re-vaccination of those who have been ill, previously vaccinated. “We see that all countries today are following this path … The scientific base confirms that re-vaccination is necessary, “said Murashko.
Speaking about preventive measures in the fight against the pandemic, he said that new approaches to such measures are emerging. Now in the Union State, he said, “a study on the mutual use of influenza and COVID vaccines in one period has been completed.” The minister admits that these data may be published in the near future.
Using the tribune of the Commonwealth Council, Murashko once again drew the attention of the population that COVID is not a myth, but “patients in intensive care is a reality.” Vaccination alone, he says, is the only way to save lives. “Therefore, on the territory of all countries, this is the main thing that a patient should do by vaccinating,” the minister said.

But the meeting of sectoral ministries, Murashko explained, is devoted not only to issues of countering infectious challenges. Within the framework of the format of the action system, it is very important, in his opinion, for a number of emergency actions.
In particular, experts are also discussing issues of blood products, transfusiology, information impact and health care. “The last two years have shown that the system must be stress-resistant, it must quickly adapt to new challenges,” the Russian minister summed up.
