(ANSA) - ROME, OCTOBER 18 - South Africa, where just over a quarter of the population has been vaccinated against the coronavirus, has refused the Russian Sputnik V vaccine because it can increase the risk in men of contracting HIV.

This was announced by the drug agency.

Russian center Gamaleya, which developed the vaccine, said it will provide evidence that South Africa's concerns are "completely unfounded".

The findings on HIV-risk populations "are based on small-scale studies," he says.
