The second wave of COVID-19 is wreaking havoc in India as it recorded over 1.61 lakh fresh Covid-19 cases in the past 24 hours. It has become the second-largest country to have the highest daily recorded Covid-19 cases after the US.

As a result of the rising daily cases and the states complaining of shortage in the vaccine supply, The Drugs Controller General Of India has given nod to the Sputnik V, making India 60th country to give its approval. Kirill Dmitriev, CEO of the Russian Direct Investment Fund said, “We appreciate the decision of India’s regulatory bodies to grant authorization for Sputnik V…”

This has definitely given a boost to the two country’s ties and is being considered a major milestone as Russia and India has developed extensive cooperation on the Sputnik V trials and also, its local production.
