Pfizer: The success rate of the Coronavirus vaccine is 90%

The Coronavirus vaccine developed by Pfizer (US) and BioNTech (Germany) is 90% “effective” in preventing Covid-19 infection according to Phase III trials, which is the last step before an application is submitted for approval by health authorities.

According to preliminary results, patient protection was achieved seven days after the injection of the second dose of the coronavirus vaccine and 28 days after the first.

“More than eight months after the start of the worst pandemic in more than a century, we believe that this step represents a significant step forward for the world in our battle against Covid-19,” said the Chairman and CEO of Pfizer, Albert Bourla, in a statement.

“The first set of results from our Phase 3 Covid-19 vaccine trial provides initial evidence of our vaccine’s ability to prevent Covid-19,” he adds.

US President Donald Trump greeted the announcement of the two pharmaceutical groups. “The stock market is rising sharply; a vaccine is coming soon. 90% efficiency. What great news! He tweeted.

Trump went out, as usual, on the blue wall, Twitter, saying that the effectiveness of the Coronavirus and the rise in stocks are good news, at a time when the American people are waiting to announce their intention to leave the White House and hand over power to the winner of the elections for the Democratic Party, Joe Biden.

Based on projections, Pfizer and BioNTech said they plan to deliver up to 50 million doses of vaccine globally in 2020 and up to 1.3 billion doses in 2021.

The “vaccine efficacy rate of more than 90%” was measured by comparing the number of participants infected with the new coronavirus in the group that received the vaccine and in the group receiving placebo, explain Pfizer and BioNtech in their press release.

The global stock market markets witnessed a breakthrough after the pharmaceutical company Pfizer announced that the Coronavirus vaccine that had been previously produced by the company reached a success rate of 90% in the last phase of the trials. Thus, US stock exchanges rose significantly, with the Dow Jones rising more than 5% immediately after this news announcement.
