    MOSCOW — Russia has registered the world's first vaccine for animals against Covid-19, its agricultural regulator said on Wednesday, after tests showed it generated antibodies against the virus in dogs, cats, foxes and mink.

    Mass production of the vaccine, called Carnivac-Cov, can start in April, regulator Rosselkhoznadzor said.

    The World Health Organization has expressed concern over the transmission of the virus between humans and animals. Moscow's regulator said the vaccine would be able to protect vulnerable species and thwart viral mutations.

    ... Clinical trials of the Russian animal vaccine began in October last year and involved dogs, cats, Arctic foxes, mink, foxes and other animals.
