The boss of the company behind the vaccine Oxford / AstraZeneca Covid-19 has brought hope that it is more effective than he thought at the start of the UK’s rapid spread of the virus.
AstraZeneca CEO Pascal Soriot told the Sunday Times that he believed the researchers had found a “successful way” by using two standards and promised to publish the results according to reports that a UK official could approve the jab in a few days.
This would be a relief even though Canada became the most recent country to report new cases of coronavirus, which first appeared in the UK and spread to at least a dozen countries.
And Chancellor Rishi Sunak praised the current vaccine trial, telling the Mail newspaper on Sunday: “There will be difficult days and months ahead, but there are reasons to look forward to a better future and what 2021 promises.
Light at the end of the tunnel
“The early release of the vaccine – as well as the remarkable work of our scientists and the NHS – means that we can now see the light at the end of the canal with the epidemic.”
But medical and labor unions have criticized the government’s handling of the program, which it says is underdeveloped.
Nadra Ahmed, chairman of the National Care Association, told the Sunday Mirror that Pfizer / BioNTech would be “difficult” but added: “This is another story that promises to be impossible. It is immutable.”
And Labor shadow health secretary Jonathan Ashworth told the newspaper that there was a “competition against time” to vaccinate enough people as it urged the Government to avoid the so-called “same mistakes” being “too late” to protect people living at home – a cover covered by PPE and discharge from hospital.
On Christmas Eve, the Department of Health and Human Services said more than 600,000 people had received the first Covid-19 vaccine, but the establishment of health facilities would not be limited to just seven places.
It also added large nursing homes with 50 to 70 beds could be offered for the first time, with approximately 2,900 nursing homes of similar size in England.
The new change, which is said to be gaining momentum across the country with the introduction of 4 dry swinghes in England on Boxing Day, continues to handle major cases with another 34,693 reported on Saturday.
Cases of this type have been confirmed throughout Europe including France, Spain, Denmark, Italy, Iceland, Switzerland, Sweden and the Netherlands, as well as worldwide in Australia, Japan and Lebanon.
And Dr Barbara Yaffe, senior medical officer for the state of Ontario in Canada, said the first two cases were confirmed to be families from the Durham region of the country with no known travel history, visibility or high risk.

Ontario residents, such as those in Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and many other parts of England, are now living in ways to prevent the spread of the virus.
In Wales, Cardiff and the Vale University Health Board submitted a request for radios requesting “assistance from medical students or other working groups who have previously assisted with patients”, a process for which people turn to help with respiration.
As new job creation strategies began to work on Boxing Day, annual sales appear to be declining sharply with highways and suburban cities that have not been significantly affected.
More than six million people in eastern and southeastern England have joined the strike, affecting 24 million people representing 43% of the population.
The areas that have been relocated to Phase 4 are Sussex, Oxfordshire, Suffolk, Norfolk and Cambridgeshire, some of Essex’s underdeveloped areas, Waverley in Surrey and Hampshire, except New Forest.

Restrictions on measure 4 include home warning, unlimited mixing with two people outside and forcing the closure of many shops, hairdressers and gymnasiums.
This comes in addition to the 3 restrictions such as the closure of the restaurant and the restaurant except where they are removing and shipping.
Mainland Scotland has entered Level 4 restrictions since Saturday, with the Scottish government demanding an increase in three weeks.
In Northern Ireland, the first week’s practice routines are very difficult, with access to the home from 8pm, with shops closed since then and all foreign and foreign meetings are banned until 6 p.m.
Unnecessary sales will be closed for the next six weeks, as will the public services, while the receptionist will only have transportation services.
