These are the results of a study conducted by Argentine scientists with the assistance of the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF), TASS reports. The results of the work were reported by the representative of the health department of the South American country, Daniel Ferrante.

According to Ferrante, the combination of the Russian drug with the Astrazeneca vaccine did not give such a clear effect.
