MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russia’s health watchdog said on Friday it had not registered any deaths linked to domestically-produced coronavirus vaccines and that negative side-effects occurred in no more than 0.1% of cases.

“Since the start of use, we have not recorded a single case of death resulting from the use of Russian coronavirus vaccines,” Roszdravnadzor head Alla Samoylova was cited as saying in a statement from the health ministry.
