    Governors in Brazil are calling on the country’s health authority to ‘think again’ after it failed to approve the Russian Sputnik V COVID jab. The state regulator said last week that it wasn’t confident in the jab’s safety. The vaccine developer retaliated, calling the decision to hold back on approval ‘entirely political.’
