Russia’s Sputnik V vaccine against coronavirus is now registered in 37 countries with total population of over 1.1 billion people, the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) reported on Thursday.

Earlier the RDIF reported that Guatemala had become the 37th country in the world to approve Sputnik V.

"An important milestone today: over 1.1 billion people live in 37 countries, where Sputnik V got emergency authorization. We’ll continue working with Latin America, North America, Europe, Africa, Middle East and Asia to save lives and restore economies," Kirill Dmitriev, CEO of the RDIF, said as quoted by the press service.

The Sputnik V coronavirus vaccine is among the top three international coronavirus vaccines in terms of approvals received from government regulators.
