An antibody therapy from the US pharmaceutical company Eli Lilly & Co. has found remarkable results in the Pfizer vaccine. The United States has approved it for emergency use.
A vaccine developed by the US pharmaceutical company Pfizer may end the epidemic. Pfizer and the German biotechnology company Bioentech have claimed 90 percent effectiveness of their own vaccines. Initially, the vaccine was tested on 43,500 people in six countries.
According to a BBC report, preliminary results from clinical trials of the vaccine show that 90 per cent of people will not be infected with Covid-19 if they get the vaccine. The vaccine is 100% safe. The test did not find anything to worry about.
Pfizer-Bioentech has signed agreements with 13 countries. The two companies said they would be able to produce 1.3 billion doses of the vaccine. The vaccine is expected to be administered to 650 million people by the end of 2021.
On the other hand, scientists have claimed that a dose of 50 million vaccines will be made by the end of 2020.
Vaccines made in several countries of the world are now in the third stage of clinical trials. But so far no vaccine like Pfizer has claimed 90 percent effectiveness.
Linda Selve, an infectious disease specialist at the University of Queensland in Australia, said the news of the success of the Pfizer vaccine was very promising. However, he also wished success to some more vaccines. According to him, if a few vaccines are readily available, all people in the world can be protected.
The Corona epidemic has been raging around the world for almost a year now. The deadly virus was first detected in China on December 31. Since then, the virus has started spreading in different countries of the world.
No antidote or drug for corona has been discovered so far. Scientists are prioritizing vaccines as the only way to survive the Corona epidemic. That is why researchers and scientists from around the world are working hard to discover the coronavirus vaccine.
