Readying a Sputnik V shot

A health worker prepares a dose of Gamaleya National Center of Epidemiology and Microbiology's Sputnik V COVID-19 vaccine during a vaccination for residents in Mandaluyong City on Thursday. The Philippines on Thursday recorded a positivity rate of 10.2 percent for the respiratory disease, the 9th straight day it stood below 11 percent but is still double the World Health Organization’s 5 percent benchmark for a 2-week period.
