  • Covid-19: Oxford University vaccine is highly effective

    The coronavirus vaccine developed by the University of Oxford is highly effective at stopping people developing Covid-19 symptoms, a large trial shows.

    Interim data suggests 70% protection, but the researchers say the figure may be as high as 90% by tweaking the dose.

    The results will be seen as a triumph, but come after Pfizer and Moderna vaccines showed 95% protection.

    However, the Oxford jab is far cheaper, and is easier to store and get to every corner of the world than the other two.

    So the vaccine will play a significant role in tackling the pandemic, if it is approved for use by regulators.

    "The announcement today takes us another step closer to the time when we can use vaccines to bring an end to the devastation caused by [the virus]," said the vaccine's architect, Prof Sarah Gilbert.

    The UK government has pre-ordered 100 million doses of the Oxford vaccine, and AstraZeneca says it will make three billion doses for the world next year.

    Prime Minister Boris Johnson said it was "incredibly exciting news" and that while there were still safety checks to come, "these are fantastic results".

    Up to 90% effective with 1.5 doses - significantly cheaper than the other vaccines and much easier to store and distribute.

    The U.K. has 100m doses on pre-order - and the U.K. company behind the vaccine could have up to 3 billion doses ready to distribute within a year.

    These medical developments are breathtaking - to turn all of this around so quickly is totally amazing.

    • Still no lockdown here in Switzerland, but our cases dropped by ~50% for a week now. Our positivity rate went from ~30% to around ~20% (even just 16,7% for the weekend). I'm glad our government chose the "middle of the road" with some restrictions, but no lockdown, and we're actually doing "fine" with this strategy so far.

        Still the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines outtalented by having a 95% protection. Quality over quantity. The real queen of Anti Covid Vaccines. Talent and beauty always win I fear.

        • Not the vaccine popping out everywhere now. Well good for us, the pandemic will be over faster and the vaccine cheaper with all that competition.

                    I am very suspicious of that. Honestly, I really want it tho... bc I almost cannot remember what life was like before Corona.

                      As far as I remember, people used to shake hands (in the Francophone countries: kiss the other like there's no tomorrow) instead of making that dance move with their feet or something ^^ .

                          • Boris has confirmed the following for the UK:
                            • Lockdown will be ending on 2nd December.
                            • The UK will then move back into a 3-tiered system.
                            • The regions with the worst COVID figures will be put into tier 3.
                            • The tiered system will be strengthened, and toughened this time.
                            • Shops will be allowed to re-open in all areas, as will gyms and grooming places.
                            • Hospitality venues however will remain closed in tier 3 areas and subject to previous guidance in tier 1 and 2 areas.
                            • Christmas will be happening, in some form - it's pending agreement between the devolved nations of the UK.
                            The vaccine is very much being heralded as the saving grace here.

                              You might be needing proof of vaccination to enter a club in the foreseeable future. And given that older people will have the priority in getting the vaccine, I predict a 70s revival club scene boom.

                                    It's basically the Alabama of Germany so they are spreading Covid by either:

                                    a) doing incestual activities
                                    b) holding mass neo-nazi gatherings
                                    c) both of the above

                                          You recently claimed that because you are an introvert that your life had not changed at all really. You told us all albout how your chosen activites had carried on in the face of Corona and that it didn't really make much of a difference to your life at all

Or have I misunderstood?
