The Ministry of Health denied the information about the refusal of  Armenia to launch a joint production of an anti-covid vaccine in the  country with Russia <Sputnik V>

ArmInfo.Armenian Health Minister Anahit Avanesyan denied ArmInfo's information that the Armenian side rejected the Russian Federation's proposal to launch  the production of an anti-covid vaccine in the country. She said this  during a press conference on April 12

. < Armenia did not give up anything. Our colleagues are negotiating with the Ministry of Economy for the organization of production. But we understand that this  should be in the presence of professional and industrial potential,  and appropriate infrastructure, " the Minister said.

At the same time, Anahit Avanesyan expressed hope that the  pharmaceutical companies of Armenia, realizing the importance of the  vaccination process in the country, will show interest in opening  joint ventures and make investments.

Recall that as previously reported by ArmInfo, within the framework  of the EEU, the Russian side proposed to Armenia to create a joint  venture for the production of <Sputnik V>. Moreover, the Eurasian  Development Bank (EDB) is ready to finance this project. This  proposal was also voiced by the official representative of the  Eurasian Economic Commission, Iya Malkina. The information was  confirmed directly by the Department of Industrial Policy of the EEC,  noting that the Armenian side did not officially respond to the  proposal, only stating that the country is allegedly unable to  establish such production due to the lack of production capabilities  and necessary competencies.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Health itself then reported that they do  not share the opinion that Armenia is not able to launch the  production of Sputnik V.

It should be noted that Armenia has already imported 24 thousand  doses of the British-Swedish AstraZeneca vaccine and 15 thousand  doses of the Russian <Sputnik V>. Soon, as the head of the health  department noted, deliveries of the Novavax vaccine of American  production are expected, and there are also agreements with the  Chinese side. The vaccination process, according to the minister,  will begin in Yerevan on April 13, in the regions-on April 14. In  particular, for the drug AstraZeneca, due to the results of various  studies, age restrictions will be applied - citizens over the age of  55 will be vaccinated with a British-Swedish injection.

According to the latest data, the number of cases of coronavirus  infection in Armenia reached 203,327, which is 22.4% of the total  number of people who passed the test, 182,836 people (89.9%)  recovered, 3,753 (1.8%) died
