Russia to test COVID-19 nasal spray vaccine

MOSCOW: Russia will test a nasal spray form of its Sputnik V vaccine against COVID-19 among adult volunteers, according to a state document released on Tuesday (October 12), as the country struggles to control the growing number of infections and deaths.

Russia was quick to develop and launch its Sputnik vaccine when the coronavirus pandemic struck last year, but uptake has been slow, with many Russians citing distrust of authorities and fear of new medical products.
