On November 4, 2020, Russian Ambassador to Zambia H.E. Mr. A. V. Boldyrev held a meeting with Minister of Health of the Republic Hon. Dr. Chitalu Chilufya. The parties discussed a wide range of issues related to the development of bilateral cooperation in the field of medicine. According to Hon. Dr. Chilufya, in recent months, Zambia has managed to increase test capabilities in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic that has led to an improvement in the sanitary and epidemiological situation in the country. In the context of this, the conversation touched upon the prospects for Zambia's participation in clinical trials, the possibility of supplying and producing the Russian vaccine against coronavirus "Sputnik-V". Hon.
