The World Health Organization (WHO) still has not received the full package of documents on the Sputnik V coronavirus vaccine to requalify it, WHO envoy to Russia Melita Vujnovic said, APA reports

"Unfortunately, we are still expecting full documentation for requalification," she said, noting that this process is accelerated during the pandemic.

The WHO representative clarified that she means the data on clinical trials that has already been received, the data on the vaccine’s safety for human health and the quality, including the information about its packaging and producers.

Vujnovic stressed that the requalification issue is stripped of political factors. According to her, the documents that were sent by the producers have already been considered, while the organization is now awaiting the remaining data. "We are hoping that it will happen in April," Vujnovic added.
