A real-world study found that as drugmakers strive to expand access, approved vaccines are very effective
Earlier this week, the Centers for Disease Control released the results of a study that found that in the real world, the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines showed a 90% effectiveness in preventing Covid-1
At the same time, pharmaceutical companies are working to expand approvals and distributions. Pfizer Pharmaceuticals announced this week that its vaccine appears to be safe and effective for adolescents under the age of 12, while Johnson & Johnson (Johnson & Johnson) has started its own trial for people aged 12 to 17. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced on Thursday that it will allow Moderna to increase the dose by up to 50% in each vial in the amendment to its emergency use authorization. It is expected that this change will speed up the release.
The CDC says that if you take other preventive measures, people who have been fully vaccinated can travel
The CDC issued a new travel guide this morning for fully vaccinated people, stating that they have a lower risk of traveling domestically and internationally, although they should continue to take other preventive measures, such as wearing masks and complying with social distancing guidelines. The potential rewards of activities such as air travel raise questions about how people can prove that they have been vaccinated. People have been talking about “vaccine passports,” and many plans to create passports are underway, but doing so in an ethical and fair way to protect people’s privacy can be a challenge.
The latest update from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) was a few days ago when its director warned Americans not to relax the Covid-19 restrictions. Many Americans are disturbed by the idea of half a “normal” summer, but the virus will continue to evolve and spread before the vaccine becomes popular.
Cases are on the rise globally, some countries have adopted new blockade measures, while others have refused to take preventive measures
In recent days, the number of daily cases in other countries/regions, including Turkey and Bangladesh, has still hit a record high. The situation in Brazil remains particularly severe. São Paolo, the largest city, recorded record-breaking daily funerals this week. The cemetery is open until 10 pm, and gravediggers dig up old graves to provide space for the new death of Covid-19. Even so, President Jal Bolsonaro still refused to take blockade measures or any other strict measures that might curb the spread of the virus.
Cases in Europe also continue to increase, and the World Health Organization says this situation is to be blamed on the “unacceptably slow” vaccination efforts in the region. Currently, 27 European countries, including France, are under partial or full blockade. France will extend its measures to cover the entire country for four weeks starting from Saturday.
