Hoda Abdulnasser: wrote Albert Bourla, CEO of Pfizer, said that the rules of the game against the emerging corona virus have changed by 90%, and there is great hope for eliminating it, depending on the new vaccine, which achieved amazing results in the third phase of clinical trials.

The two companies, “Pfizer” and “Biontech”, have indicated in a joint statement, today, Monday, that they have measured the effectiveness of the Corona vaccine, by making a comparison between two groups of people, the first received the actual vaccine, and the other got a placebo vaccine.

And after 7 days of receiving the second dose and 28 days after receiving the first dose, the vaccine showed great efficacy against the coronavirus, according to France-Presse agency.

The CEO of the company added in an interview with CNN, that it is not possible now to determine how long the protection provided by the vaccine against the coronavirus will last, stressing: “44,000 people who received the vaccine will be followed up for two years, to determine how long the immune response will last.”

Bourla described the Corona vaccine as the greatest medical development in the past 100 years, indicating that the company could produce 50 million doses this year, and 1.3 billion doses globally during the next year.

In the same context, Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the American National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, yesterday, received the news of a vaccine to prevent Corona virus developed by Pfizer describing it as a “great thing”, and said that the United States may have vaccine doses ready before the end of the year.

In an interview with CNN, Fauci said he believed he would remain in his current position for the time being and had no intention of leaving his position.
