Creator of Sputnik V “, Director of the National Research Center for Epidemiology of microbiology named after Gamaleya Alexander Gintsburg spoke about the advantages of a nasal vaccine against coronavirus, reports RIA Novosti.

According to him, if vaccinated against COVID-19 are vaccinated with an additional nasal drug, they will cease to be carriers of infection. “In such people, most likely, who will be internally vaccinated, sterile immunity will be created,” said Gunzburg.

The nasal drug complements it, creating another barrier to the coronavirus.
