Good news! Pfizer Officially Announces 100% Protection Against Variant Viruses

The third wave of the epidemic is surging and BC, once a model in the fight against the epidemic, has fallen, as evidenced by yesterday’s new cases. 1013 new cases were reported in BC yesterday, Wednesday, the highest single-day number of new cases since the beginning of the epidemic in more than a year, which also marks the highest number of new cases in the province exceeding the 100,000 mark.

The situation is even more critical in Eastern Ontario, with 2,557 new cases today! ICU numbers are also climbing at 433, of which 406 are still positive, with a 94% positive mark! 259 of them are on ventilators.

But at the same time there is great news coming! Pfizer today (April 1) and partner German manufacturer BioNTech jointly issued a statement: the latest experiments proved that the vaccine completed two doses of vaccination to help the human body to resist the Chinese Communist virus at least six months effective, but also to prevent the South African variant of the virus.

At least the Pfizer vaccine has been confirmed to be able to fight the South African variant of the virus, although the ability to protect against other variants of the virus has yet to be further tested, but it is a step forward in helping humans to build a protective barrier.

Pfizer official announcement: vaccine can protect against South African variant virus

According to a trial conducted in South Africa with up to 12,000 participants, the Pfizer vaccine is 100% effective in preventing the South African variant of virus B.1.351, according to the joint statement. The statement also provides a positive answer to the question of whether the vaccine’s effectiveness and safety can be tested over time.

The results of the trial report show that no serious health and safety problems occurred in any vaccine users during the six-month-long trial period, and that the overall effectiveness of the Pfizer vaccine against the Chinese Communist virus was still 91% six months after the vaccine was administered to the public.

Albert Bourla, president and CEO of Pfizer, said the data proves that the Pfizer vaccine has a good effect and safety, which helps the vaccine to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to formally submit a Biologics License Application (BLA).

At present, the experimental data of Pfizer’s vaccine still needs to be reviewed (peer-reviewed) and published in scientific journals. However, Pfizer has indicated that it plans to submit a vaccine application to health authorities around the world in the near future.

Only, at present, Pfizer’s official announcement is only able to protect 100% of the South African variant of the virus, for other variants of the virus protection ability, pending further testing.

Experts: New vaccine will be needed within a year

Pfizer has just announced a great news, on the other hand, there are also a number of world-renowned experts said that they can not be too early, because the virus “intelligence” is too high, has been constantly fighting with humans, always in constant mutation. In their judgment, a new vaccine for the new crown will be needed in less than a year.

The People’s Vaccine Alliance (PVA), formed by Amnesty International, Oxfam, UNAIDS and others, surveyed 77 medical experts in 28 countries around the world and found that two-thirds of them believe that a new vaccine will be needed within a year, while one-third of them are more pessimistic, believing that a new vaccine would be needed in less than nine months.

The Guardian reports that the 77 experts are all epidemiologists, virologists and epidemiologists, and all come from top global institutions such as Johns Hopkins University, Yale University, Imperial College London, the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, and the University of Edinburgh, so their opinions are authoritative.

These experts believe that vaccine coverage is quite low in many countries or regions around the world, and that the virus is constantly mutating, and that the constant delays in vaccination make it more likely that the virus will develop drug-resistant mutations.

Gregg Gonsalves, an associate professor of epidemiology at Yale University, revealed that new mutations occur every day, so the virus may find the most favorable pattern, not only to spread more widely but also to escape the immune response that previous strains of the virus would have suffered.

Gonsalves emphasized that unless the world is vaccinated, the virus will always leave room for mutations, resulting in new variants that only a new vaccine can handle. Although the current Pfizer and Modena vaccines use messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA), which can be adjusted more quickly to deal with mutations, issues of price and preservation have always prevented mass injections in poor countries.

The current reality is that advanced countries such as the United Kingdom and the United States have acquired hundreds of millions of doses of the vaccine, and more than a quarter of the population has received at least one dose of the vaccine, while South Africa and Thailand have not been able to vaccinate even 1% of their populations, and some countries have not even promoted vaccination.

Two doses of the vaccine still infected with the Chinese Communist virus

According to KOMO News radio, one million people in Washington State have been fully vaccinated since February 1, that is, two doses of the vaccine have been administered, but 102 cases of infection with the Chinese Communist virus have been recorded, but it must be noted that this is a normal number because the 102 cases are based on a vaccination base of one million people, and most of these people have mild symptoms, some of them even have no symptoms. mild, and some of them even asymptomatic.

Of course, the report also notes that eight of the vaccinees were later infected with the virus and were in serious condition and required hospitalization. Two of those cases were also tracked as possible cases of vaccinees who eventually died from the infection.

According to the report, the local health department was recording cases of infection after vaccination, meaning precisely that two weeks after the second dose of vaccine, the CCP virus tested positive.

In response, Washington State Health Department Director Umair A. Shah said the incident is a reminder that even if you have been vaccinated, it doesn’t mean everything is fine, and that you still need to wear a mask, wash your hands regularly, and must maintain a social distance.
