Scientists Behind Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine Claim ‘It’ll Stop The Pandemic’

New Delhi: Scientists Ugur Sahin and Ozlem Tureci, who were behind Pfizer and BioNTech’s breakthrough COVID-19 vaccine, said that they expects it to “bash the virus over the head” and ultimately end the pandemic, according to a report.

Pfizer on Monday said that its experimental vaccine was more than 90% effective in preventing COVID-19 based on initial data from a large study.

The companies have so far found no serious safety concerns and expect to seek US emergency use authorization later this month.

“If the question is whether we can stop this pandemic with this vaccine, then my answer is: yes, because I believe that even protection only from symptomatic infections will have a dramatic effect,” Ugur said.

“We have trained the immune system very well to perfect these two defensive moves. We now know that the virus can’t defend itself against these mechanisms,” he further explained.

Pfizer and BioNTech are the first drugmakers to show successful data from a large-scale clinical trial of a coronavirus vaccine.

The two companies had said that their mRNA-based vaccine candidate, BNT162b2, has demonstrated evidence of efficacy against COVID-19 in participants without prior evidence of SARS-CoV-2 infection.
