Moderna vaccine results ‘stunningly impressive,’ Anthony Fauci

The United States’ top infectious disease official on Monday hailed early results from Moderna’s Covid-19 vaccine as “stunningly impressive,” calling the result a validation for experimental mRNA technology that some had doubted.

“I had said, and I must admit, that I would have been satisfied with 70, or at the most 75 percent efficacy,” he told AFP.

“The idea that we have a 94.5 percent effective vaccine is stunningly impressive. It is really a spectacular result that I don’t think anybody had anticipated would be this good.”

Bharat Biotech Starts Phase III Trials For COVAXIN

Bharat Biotech announced the commencement of Phase III trials of COVAXIN on Monday.

The Phase III trials will involve 26,000 volunteers across India and will be conducted in partnership with ICMR. It is the largest clinical trial conducted for a COVID-19 vaccine in India.

This is India’s first phase 3 efficacy study for a COVID-19 vaccine, and the largest phase III efficacy trial ever conducted in India. The trial has been registered at www.ctri.nic.in (CTRI/2020/11/028976) and approved by the Drugs Controller General of India.

Vaccine Will Not Be Enough To Stop Pandemic: WHO Chief

The head of the World Health Organization said Monday that a vaccine would not by itself stop the coronavirus pandemic.

The pandemic is raging months after it broke out, with infections soaring past 54 million and claiming more than 1.3 million lives.

“A vaccine will complement the other tools we have, not replace them,” director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said. “A vaccine on its own will not end the pandemic.”

The WHO’s figures for Saturday showed that 660,905 coronavirus cases were reported to the UN health agency, setting a new high water mark.

That number, and the 645,410 registered on Friday, surpassed the previous daily record high of 614,013 recorded on November 7.
