Never let the facts get in the way of a paper-selling or click-bait headline after all!BBC or Bloomberg ... really it doesn't matter. I am giving you the SOURCE information - the actual full details of each research effort.. Often journalists hear "human trials" and they write up that it is at the last stage before approval - which is wrong. Human testing stages are: pre-clinical, phase1, phase2, phase3.
The actual status of all vac-candidates are given in these 2 links :
London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine : COVID-19
WHO : Draft landscape of COVID-19 candidate vaccines
As at today - the effort from Gamaleya Institute is in Phase 1 .... and they expect that completed on 05 Aug 2020. If journalists cannot read those details - it doesn't alter the facts.
A bit like the CSELR in Sydney - actually cuts public transport passenger capacity between Kingsford/Randwick & Central/Circular Quay in each direction during the morning peak hour by over 10,000 vs the 20 bus routes to be eliminated! Yet TfNSW & Gladys claim otherwise even though the State Auditor General confirmed otherwise.
But did provide excuse to rezone for 18+ story high rise along its route (including State Govt plans for on Randwick racecourse revealed in July 2013).
Really is galling when you sometimes have to agree with narcissists about fake news! Maybe we go back to calling it propaganda instead?
