Brazilian Governor Vows to Challenge Health Regulator After Refusal to Greenlight Sputnik V Imports

Earlier, the US Department of Health and Human Services has admitted in a report that Washington used “diplomatic relations”, forcing the Latin American country to reject Sputnik V for “US safety and security”.

The governor of the Brazilian state of Ceara, Camilo Santana, has slammed a decision by the federal health regulator Anvisa, who denied permission to import Sputnik V in several states, pledging to press forward for authorisation of the Russian vaccine.

“The northeastern science committee has supported Sputnik V use. I will keep fighting for this [import] permission confidently and in line with all regulations so that we could deliver the vaccine to our population as soon as possible”, Santana wrote on Twitter.
