World Health Organisation representative in Russia, Melita Vujnovic, said WHO has received certification requests for 40 coronavirus tests, as 20 vaccines are being developed.

Vujnovic made the statement in an interview with Sputnik on Friday.

“As of this moment, the WHO has received 40 requests to consider and approve diagnostics tests, 20 vaccines are being developed, and many medicines are in clinical trials. We are expecting first results in several weeks,’’ she said.

She added that Russia is taking significant measures to test for coronavirus and monitor all contacts of the infected to prevent the spread of the disease.
