Coronavirus vaccine race: A matter of political prestige - COVID-19 Special.

The race for a corona vaccine is not just a matter of saving lives it's also a matter of saving face for some world leaders. As news broke this week that two vaccines have reached 90 percent efficacy, the incentive to speed up trials is growing. Russia and China are already rolling out their vaccines to the public, before final testing. Is that safe? What efficacy rate is high enough? What level of side effects is acceptable?
And how can users trust the vaccine they're given? In a world brimming with disinformation seperating fact from fiction is challenging.

President Vladimir Putin says Russia is registering its third vaccine against the coronavirus and insists all of them are effective. But its Sputnik Five vaccine is still being trialled and there is no conclusive proof yet that it works.
