Appears a COVID Vaccine Is Not Far Away
There are reports in Australian media today saying that our Government has ordered 10 million doses of the COVID vaccine that is being produced by Pfizer Pharmaceuticals. It is being reported that the vaccine is to be distributed from March 2021.
Yes, they say their vaccine is 90% effective. After this important announcement, I expected Pfizer’s stock price to jump up dramatically, but it didn’t. Isn’t it strange?
Yes, it is very strange. The CEO of Pfizer also sold $5.6 millions worth of stocks right before the announcement of the vaccine.
Indeed Pfizer has this development and that it’s 90% effective which is good news to the whole world. But I guess it might take time to reach every part of the globe mostly 3rd world countries.
Wow. This is really good news to the world. But, it will take WHO donken years to approve the vaccine.
This is really the good news i was waiting for a long time, it finally happened.the World will take a breath after suffering a lot. Where there is a life there is a Hope.
On the other hand, it’s still too early to celebrate because, even if this development has been announced, it may take sometime for enough dozes to be made available for whole world population I guess! Then, the logistics for delivery part might complicate the situation also.
Has the vaccine been tested? Have there been a human trial?
Yes, they have undergone, three medical trials and passed all the stages.
Leno, the vaccine must be accessible if your government order it. However, the decision of government over which vaccine to buy is different among countries. What about the situation in your country? In Indonesia, the government buy Sinovac, COVID-19 from China, currently the government is performing clinical trial to check whether the vaccine is effective for Indonesians.
Yes they have announced a vaccine is being made in South Africa by two leading pharmaceutical companies sounds like the covid-19 pandemic may soon be a thing in the past.
Shane, that is good news for Africa if it’s true that a vaccine is being developed/ made in S.Africa indeed. It may now quickly reach my country.
Any good news on the fight against the coronavirus is welcome. We have our fingers crossed for the Pfizer vaccine to be fully effective against the virus.
That’s what we hope .That’s if WHO will agree to approve the vaccine.
Yes we have the same news as Edward that the UK has ordered 10m of the Pfizer vaccine – tested successfully on 43000 people so far
I feel very blessed and happy when i heard the news of the covid19 vaccine invention. It going to help countries to get out of this pandemic trouble. Thank God and searchers who are doing their best to find the solution of this pandemic problem.
We should thank all individuals and organisations, for doing great work.Now all countries should do procurement of the required drugs ,for their citizens.
The vaccine is already in many countries around the world, it seems that it is efficient and able to cure the disease. Let’s wait to see what it can do.
Yes it was administered in the UK today, and with the Oxford vaccine due to be approved next week then it cold finally be the downfall of the virus in the UK and worldwide.
The covid19 vaccine is available in many countries, the problem is the efficiency of the vaccine and the accessibility to poor people who can’t afford it.
Each government should perform a clinical trial to test the efficacy of the vaccine, Leno. Also, several governments provide the vaccine for free to those who can’t afford to pay for the vaccine. At least, that is what happens in Indonesia. What about your country, Leno?
