According to CNN, Argentine President Alberto Fernández (Alberto Fernández) received the Russian Sputnik V vaccine about two months later, and he tested positive for COVID-19.
Fernandez wrote on Twitter on Friday that he received a positive antigen test after observing a temperature of 37.3ºC (99.14ºF). Another PCR test confirmed this diagnosis.
Fernandez said in a Spanish-translated tweet: “I have been cut off from the world, I am following my current treatment plan and following the instructions of my personal doctor.” “I have contacted people I met in the past 48 hours, To assess whether they constitute close ties.”
Although we are waiting to be confirmed by the PCR test, I have been quarantined, abiding by the current agreement and following the instructions of my personal doctor.

CNN pointed out that it is still possible to be infected by the coronavirus after vaccination, which has been shown to reduce the possibility of infection, especially the possibility of serious infection. An analysis published in February by the British medical journal The Lancet found that the effectiveness of the Russian Sputnik V vaccine is about 91.6.
The Gamaleya Institute in Moscow developed the Sputnik V vaccine and expressed good wishes to Fernandez on Twitter.
“We are sorry to hear this news. Sputnik V is 91.6% effective against infection and 100% effective against severe cases. If the infection is indeed confirmed and occurs, vaccination ensures rapid recovery without serious Symptoms. We hope you will recover soon! The institute wrote on Twitter.
