In a more merrier covid update, the vaccine trials conducted by Pfizer says its vaccine has been 90% effective in protecting people from the transmission of the virus.
The vaccine shots were given to the 44,000 volunteers which included both real and dummy shots. Among them 94 people developed symptoms for coronavirus and later tested positive.
Almost all of the volunteers who tested positive are said to have received dummy shots.
The experts say the vaccine has performed much better than everyone expected and could bring an end to the pandemic which has already killed more than 1 million people worldwide.
The vaccine could be given to the frontline workers as early as the end of this year. However it could take about a year to reach a substantial population and even more than that to reach everyone.
As the success of the pfizer came out, the global stocks have seen a sharp rise but companies which were synonymous with the lockdown, the likes of Zoom application and food delivery firms saw a fall in their value.
