According to the news report, the phase 2 trials were started on July 13. On August 3, Russian media reported that Gamaleya Institute had completed clinical trials.

The Russian vaccine is not among the WHO’s list of six vaccines that have reached phase three clinical trials, which involve more testing in humans.
The superfast speed at which the Russian vaccine has been produced, eclipsing front runners like Oxford-AstraZeneca, Moderna and Pfizer, has led to experts flagging that the government has cut corners and may put citizens at risk..
