After almost eight months of the still ongoing global COVID 19 pandemic, a ray of hope and happiness is being seen as finally after so long, now UK is first country worldwide to approver Pfizer COVID Vaccine.
This is the most amazing and exciting scoop of the day which is an indicator that it will not take too much time for things to start going back to normal in all around the world globally, where UK is first country worldwide to approve Pfizer COVID Vaccine.
United Kingdom is the first country in the world that has finally approved the coronavirus vaccine that has been created and made by Pfizer in collaboration with its German partner where the first initial round of trials are all set to start in the next week itself.
The British medicinal regulatory apex agency Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Authority, or MHRA officially has announced on Wednesday about the same where it has approved thereby giving the green signal to the New York based drug maker and German BIONTech for emergency use.
On this, Prime Minister Borris Johnson tweeted, “It’s the protection of vaccines that will ultimately allow us to reclaim our lives and get the economy moving again”.
Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla praising the vaccine’s approval, said, “a historic moment in the fight against COVID-19”.
Furthermore, he also said, “This authorization is a goal we have been working toward since we first declared that science will win, and we applaud the MHRA for their ability to conduct a careful assessment and take timely action to help protect the people of the U.K. With thousands of people becoming infected, every day matters in the collective race to end this devastating pandemic”.
BBC news also reported officially that, “Next in line for the jab are expected to be those over the age of 80 as well as additional health and care staff”.
Furthermore, it also clearly mentioned in its report that, “The nation has so far ordered 40 million doses of the coronavirus treatment, which is enough to treat about 20 million people. Hancock said the treatment would be doled out at the speed that it’s manufactured by Pfizer at its facilities in Belgium, with the bulk of the rollout expected to take place over the course of next year”.
On this even the U.K. Health Secretary Matt Hancock said, “The first 800,000 doses are set to be distributed to elderly people in nursing homes and medical workers on the front lines”.
He also added, “2020 has been just awful and 2021 is going to be better. I’m confident now, with the news today, that from spring, from Easter onward, things are going to be better. And we’re going to have a summer next year that everyone can enjoy”.
The final testing and assessment study analysis of the Phase 3 trial of Pfizer’s vaccine revealed that certainly it was about 95% effective against coronavirus and showed no negative side effects, the drug maker announced last month.
