Some COVID good news, for a change

There may be some good news on the COVID front as an Israeli doctor reports that the second jab from the Pfzer vaccine is so effective, he wonders if it will not only prevent people from getting sick, but may actually increase a person’s immunity so much it prevents them from spreading the virus. The Daily Mail explains: Pfizer‘s Covid vaccine could produce a strong enough immune response to stop people who get the jab from spreading the coronavirus, a doctor in Israel has claimed. Researchers found in a small study that recipients of the jab developed up to 20 times more antibodies within a week of having the second dose of the jab. Higher levels of antibodies likely lead to a stronger immune response which could clear the virus before someone has a chance to spread it, but this is still not proven. Until now, scientists didn’t know whether vaccines would stop transmission and were banking only on it preventing severe illness and death.

Newsmax writes: Moderna Inc. said Monday its experimental vaccine was 94.5% effective in preventing COVID-19 based on interim data from a late-stage clinical trial, becoming the second U.S. company in a week to report results that far exceed expectations. Together with Pfizer Inc’s vaccine, also shown to be more than 90% effective, and pending more safety data and regulatory review, the United States could have two vaccines authorized for emergency use in December with as many as 60 million doses of vaccine available by the year’s end.

COVID vaccine coming and plummeting death rates

There is good news on a couple of fronts. First Pfizer reveals that it may have a COVID vaccine available by the end of November that could be upwards of 90% effective. There is a bit of a “but” there, but still good news. The Daily Wire writes: The pharmaceutical company Pfizer says that its developmental vaccine for COVID-19 may be 90% effective at inoculating people against the disease. The company announced the news in a statement issued Monday morning. The rate of effectiveness was calculated by analyzing early data from 94 trial participants in a study involving 43,538 subjects from all over the world. The small early sample means that the protection rate could change by the time the study ends and all the participants are accounted for, according to The Associated Press.
