Russia Claims To Have a COVID Vaccine, Refuses To Release Data

The US medical community has rejected Trump's belief that a vaccine could be ready by Election Day.

There are 25 vaccines currently in clinical trials and more than 100 more in development.

But this is not the space race, it's a worldwide pandemic and Putin is trying to claim victory.

Critics say the country's push for a vaccine is partly due to political pressure from the Kremlin.

CNN reports Putin and his team are keen to portray Russia as a global scientific force.
