Hope in the form of a Vaccine!
This week with Fia, we are still very interested in COVID-19, which as we said brings us a break! Fiametta interviewed some very important researchers in the area and collected very important information and I wanted to show a little how this new type of vaccine works, which promises us a very high efficacy in its first preliminary data from phase III!
With Juliana we decided to take a break from synbio for one week - we will go back to it next Monday. Just for this week we would like to talk about vaccines, as the news of Pfizer's vaccine 90% efficacy spread.
Without writing too much, I will share three graphic recordings, a form of visual note taking, about vaccine testing in times of coronavirus. The information is coming from three scientists working on vaccines: Anne Moore (UCC Cork), Jeremy Rossman (University of Kent) and Zania Stamataki (University of Birmingham) answering three main questions: how fast are we going, what kind of vaccines are being tested (The Pfizer / BioNTech vaccine kind is #4, very promising and never done on a global scale), and how are people reacting.
