A new study has revealed that a vaccine developed by Oxford University and AstraZeneca not only protects people from death, but also reduces the transmission of the virus. In a study by researchers at the University of Oxford, it has been found that any corona vaccine can reduce the transmission of the virus.
Transmission claims to be reduced by two-thirds
Researchers examined the people involved in the study every week to find out the effect on transmission of the virus. They found that even if someone is infected after taking the vaccine, it cannot spread the virus and there was a 67 percent reduction in positive swab among people taking the vaccine. Oxford and AstraZeneca researchers found that the vaccine could reduce transmission by about two-thirds. However, the research results have not been reviewed by experts yet.
British Health Secretary told the results encouraging
British Health Secretary Matt Hancock praised the results on Wednesday. He said that “We now know that the Oxford vaccine also reduces transmission and it will help all of us to get out of this epidemic,” adding that “everyone should believe that it is not only to keep you safe Works, but also prevents the virus from spreading to others “
Scientists emphasize more analysis of data
At the same time, warning of limited information released in the results of this study, some scientists have warned that more analysis of the data is necessary. Dr. Doug Brown, Chief Executive of the British Society of Immunology, said, “While this would be a very welcome news, we need more data before it is confirmed. So it’s important that even after taking the vaccine, all of us still have Keep following social distancing “
Single dose of vaccine is 76 percent effective
Researchers at Oxford and AstraZeneca also found that the single dose of the vaccine was 76 percent effective at inhibiting Kovid-19. The data were measured three months after the first shot was given, not including the initial period of three weeks. These results can help in the strategy of giving first dose to more people of Britain and other countries.
