The Russian Emergencies Ministry will deliver about 30,000 doses of Sputnik Light vaccine kits as humanitarian aid to the people of Laos by special aircraft. This was reported to TASS on Tuesday by the press service of the department.

“A special aircraft of the Russian Emergencies Ministry sent about 30,000 doses of Sputnik Light vaccine kits as humanitarian aid. Assistance was provided as part of the fight against a new coronavirus infection,” the press service said.

Humanitarian aid will be delivered on September 21 with the order of the Russian government to appeal to the population of Laos.

On September 16, the Lao authorities extended restrictive measures to combat covid until September 30. Tipphakone Chanthavongsa, Deputy Head of the Prime Minister's Office, said the decision was made as the number of COVID-19 cases in the country continues to rise. At the moment, the borders are closed in the country, the work of restaurants, sports and entertainment and educational institutions has been suspended. A ban on mass events has been introduced.

The first cases of coronavirus infection were registered in Laos on March 24, 2020.
