KENYA is ready to engage Russia in regards to the new vaccine. Health officials have said they will engage Russia over its Covid-19 vaccine.
This comes after Russia became the first country in the world to officially register its vaccine.
Experts have raised concerns about the speed of Russia’s work, suggesting that researchers might be cutting corners.
“We definitely will plug in and work with Russia to ensure that the vaccine is safe before we use it,” health chief administrative secretary Mercy Mwangangi is quoted as telling a media briefing on Tuesday.
The secretary said “the Kenyan government will follow protocols through its foreign ministry.”
Kenya has so far confirmed 27,425 coronavirus cases.
