OMS suspends approval for Sputnik V vaccine

During a WHO inspection visit to a drug manufacturing plant, irregularities were detected, thus suspending the process of endorsing Russian doses for violations. "The process for the Sputnik V emergency use list was suspended because while inspecting one of the plants where the vaccine was made, they found that the plant was not in accordance with best manufacturing practices," said Jarbas Barbosa, deputy director of the Pan American Health Organization
