The Ministry of Health of the Nation released this Wednesday a report that shows how many people contracted covid-19

after having applied the first dose

of

Sputnik V, Sinopharm and AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccines.

In the case of

Sputnik V

, the first vaccine against covid-19 used in the country and the one with the most doses applied so far, the percentage of infected after 14 days from the first inoculation

was 0.27%

.

This data was taken from the sample of 2,632,249 people who received at least one dose.

Regarding the

Covishield

vaccine

, developed by the University of Oxford and the AstraZeneca laboratory and manufactured in India, 578,433 first doses were applied in the country.

Of this total, those who were infected after 14 days were 

0.46%

, a number somewhat higher than that presented with the Russian drug.

Most of those who became ill after receiving Sputnik V did so within days of getting vaccinated.

With this information, the Government tries to close the controversy and doubts that exist in society about the effectiveness of vaccines after a single dose has been applied.

The dissemination of these data can also be read as a response to the doubts that arose after the statements of the director of the China Center for Disease Control and Prevention, Gao Fu, who stated that Chinese vaccines

"do not have very high protection rates. high "

against the coronavirus.

This information reached the country and put the government in the eye of the storm, which has been

applying Sinopharm vaccines for several weeks

and expects two million more of this vaccine for the next few days.

Among those vaccinated with Sinopharm, the number of patients decreased sharply after day 21 after inoculation.

we can optimize our supply process

, "Fu told the Chinese portal

Guancha.com

.

decrease in infections among health personnel

who were inoculated.
