LONDON (Reuters) - The World Health Organization said on Friday it had had very good dialogue with developers of a second Russian vaccine candidate against COVID-19.

“We will only be able to have a position on a vaccine when we see results of the phase 3 clinical trials,” WHO Chief Scientist Soumya Swaminathan told a news conference in Geneva.
