Russia’s “Sputnik V” Vaccine 92% Effective Against “Symptomatic” COVID Cases

Support SouthFront

Originally appeared at ZeroHedge

As it turns out, the Kremlin wasn’t embellishing when it first said its COVID vaccine, developed by the Gamaleya Institute with financing from Russia’s Sovereign Wealth Fund, was as effective as the best Western vaccines. According to the official data, Russia’s Sputnik V vaccine has 91.6% efficacy rate against symptomatic coronavirus cases.

These preliminary findings are based on an analysis of data from more than 20K, mostly white, participants, 3/4ths of whom received the vaccine, while the rest received a placebo. No serious adverse health impacts were reported; most negative health effects included flu-like symptoms, pain at the injection site and weakness or lethargy,

“Sputnik V” was administered in two injections 21 days apart, just like similar counterparts in the west. In the 21 days after the first dose, there were 16 cases of COVID-19 in the 14,964 people (0.1%) in the vaccine group, and 62 cases of the disease in the 4.9K individuals (1.3%) in the placebo group.

The preliminary findings are based on an analysis of data from more than 20K, mostly white, participants, 3/4ths of whom received the vaccine. The remainder received a placebo.

The trial included 2.1K participants aged 60 and older, and n this subset, the vaccine had 91.8% efficacy against symptomatic disease, according to the Lancet. Similar to the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine, “Sputnik V” is based on a modified version of the adenovirus, a common cold virus, the same technique used to create vaccines from AstraZeneca and SinoVac.

Rates of infection in the placebo group vs. the group of patients who received the vaccine are charted below:

Notably, four deaths were reported during the trial: One person died in the placebo group due to a stroke, while the remaining three deaths occurred in the vaccine group, but, of course, none of these were attributable to the vaccine.

Unlike the AstraZeneca vaccine, the Sputnik V vaccine uses two variations of the basic adenovirus. Meanwhile, serious side-effects were observed in 68 patients, but 45 of these were in the placebo group.

Perhaps it is useless, but at least it doesn’t kill like Big Pharma’s vaccines, it remains unacceptable as Western rulers have relied solely on pharmaceutical companies with a record of convictions for fraudulent conduct and mass murder that Genghis Khan envied, giving away piles of money to one of the worst crime cartels in the world.

Yes it all stinks of political collusion.

Speaking of stinking, the canadian media refers to the russian vaccine as “Sputnik VEE”, this has happened a dozen times so far! LOL

pepa65

Is it supposed to be Sputnik 5?

tzatz

Totally free of truth … it’s a wonderful piece of propaganda

Well done … ???

“our vaccine is better than yours”… Sheeple

All the Sleepers

Useless? Your comment is useless. It’s a counterweapon.

Aquilegia

And now the retarded EUrocrats want it, how bout that?
Let them swim in their new and technologically advanced Pfizer fountain of youth, which so far has killed hundreds of seniors and throw in some younger people as well.

FAKE NEWS …

Aquilegia

Not fake news. In Sweden alone, the recent national drug agency report claims 43 dead and visible side effects of 390, of which 145 are serious. Numbers are rising.

Wow … that would have made the FRONT PAGE on every newspaper … hello?

FAKE NEWS ….

occupybacon

Pfizer also made Viagra and brought to life millions of seniors

Raptar Driver

That’s not life, that is animating defunct flesh.

occupybacon

Like any Russian in the morning :)

All the Sleepers

Proof? No question it is not as safe, but this is just wild speculation on your behalf.

Aquilegia

It killed 50 in Sweden alone, tens in Finland (in official reports only, till the counting stopped) and hundreds more around the EU and cause some kind of facial and probably other paralysis to others based on videos circulating around. If you agree with ”experts” that death and paralysis are acceptable side effects and proof of functionality, that’s your opinion.

All the Sleepers

You are an imbecile. 50 people? Is this a joke? How old were they, did they have health issues etc.? Blithering witless fool. If this is a deadly weapon then it is a failure. Now bugger off you useless bum.

BMWA1

But what about its Freedom Values?

This is the health-care equipment that I’m currently using. My arthritis and stroke symptoms got much worse during the Mossad Covid 19 bioweapon attack last year.

Quinine in place of hydroxychloroquine, with zinc, C, D3 and asprin. In conjunction with pushups, windmills and dumbbell cleans and presses. Cured the symptoms. I’ve disconnected the asprin and added colloidal silver.

D-vitamin is enough for me. Also contemplating regular use of probiotics. The gut has a huge role in immune defense, and some people might decrease in the variety of bacteria. Actually, the gut has a role in everything to the heart and brains, and a recent study says it has a role in developing or preventing alzheimer’s as well.

I agree. Yogurt is a staple of my diet. I usually eat 1 serving everyday.

Raptar Driver

The best probiotic in the world is called kefir.
You can make it at home for little cost.
It takes some practice but it is not difficult.

Wow … you’re not long for ‘this world’ … here let me give you a SHOVE!

The mrna “vaccine” may be a bioweapon. I’m not taking it.

Aquilegia

It is not legally a vaccine, which is a misrepresentation. It’s an experimental chemotherapy/ synthetic gene therapy agent .

All the Sleepers

Neither am I. As a former Soviet citizen I do not trust the efficacy and/or safety of other vaccines, especially from NATO countries. However, I am not an imbecile who thinks that just bcs something isn’t necessarily true, the exact opposite is hardly necessarily correct.

RichardD

I go by what the evidence shows. And there’s a lot that the vaccine is dangerous and may be a bioweapon.

cechas vodobenikov

in Denmark they use cheese–vast protests against Covid fascism…. so far the amerikan Pfizer has killed 50 alone in Norway, thousands in USA—reputed to be 60% effective
more amerikan incompetence

tzatz

Pfizer’s mRNA vaccine was sourced by Turkish-German company and it’s 95% effective

Raptar Driver

95% effective at killing people?

tzatz

Cool …

tzatz

I commend the Russians for developing this vaccine …. if the evidence is corroborated … eh?

Mazel Tov … Good Job or jab as the Brits say

Raptar Driver

92% effective against a virus that does not exist?
Why not just say 100%? It would not matter.
