Russian scientists have developed five vaccine prototypes against the novel coronavirus but they are still at the initial stage of research, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Tatiana Golikova said on February 26.

“Five vaccine prototypes have been developed but the work is at the initial stage. I would like to add that colleagues are working assiduously on that and when we have more concrete results we will tell about them,” she said.

Russia’s Foreign Ministry has issued a warning for Russian nationals against visiting Iran, Italy and South Korea amidst the outbreak of the novel coronavirus epidemics in these countries.

“Following an outbreak of the new coronavirus infection (COVID-19) in the Republic of Korea, Iran and a number of Italian regions and in a bid to prevent its import to Russia, the Russian Foreign Ministry recommends Russian nationals to temporary refrain from visiting South Korea, Iran and Italy unless such visits are vitally necessary,” the ministry said in a press statement posted on its website on February 26.
